I built this stand from 2X8 Cedar to hold my Big Green Egg grill / smoker. the grill weighs over 100 lbs and is made of ceramic about 1” thick. I needed to be able to turn the BGE to face the wind for tuning the fire temps when I cook so the whole BGE sits on a lazy suzan bearing set I got at Home Depot. The stand needed to be very stable as I have two dogs 55 and 65 Lbs and they would get their tieouts wrapped around the grill and tip it over. I actually drew the design after seeing a Japanese garden bench that I really liked and as usual I had the Frank Lloyd Write influance creep in as happens with most things I design. Under the turntable is a small breadpan that slides in groves to serve as an ash catch pan when I clean out the bottom of the grill thru the little draft slide door.
The stand is about 3 years old now and it sits out in out wonderful wisconsin weather all year round and seem to be holding up just fine.
