Long time lurker and decided it was time to start uploading some projects. I purchased the egg from a buddy of mine about 6 months ago and ever since wanted to build an appropriate table. It is constructed from red cedar using domino construction. The granite I picked up for free off of craigslist and had it fabricated by a local shop. I still have a few storage solutions to do for the cabinet but otherwise its complete. I sprayed approximately 5 coats of General Finishes 450 for protection.

I have the same sized BGE that I’ve been meaning to build a cart/table for but haven’t found a version I really like. Yours is the best version I’ve seen so I’m going to shamelessly plagiarize your design and hopefully get one built this winter or spring.

What are the general dimensions?

BTW -you need to post more projects so we can see what else is lurking in your shop. Nicely done!!!!

Thanks Moke! I actually copied my buddies design, Lance’s Workshop. The granite is a game changer for sure. Makes it feel much more of a kitchen.

Granite top dimensions is 30”x 55”. The hole cut out is 21” diameter and its as close fitting as possible, I was definitely a little nervous as I dropped the egg in lol.

Great job!

I made a basic table nearly 14 years ago (identical to the one that Big Green Egg sold then for about $450) for my large Egg. You may want to consider adding a piece of the granite underneath the Egg to keep the cedar from being burned by escaping, hot charcoal bits. It would also keep the cedar from getting too dirty when you remove the charcoal dust from the Egg’s firebox.

Good “Egging!”

Thank you!
Good point and something probably overlooked a bit. My old table was made from pine and besides getting covered in ash when cleaning it out I didn’t notice too many embers burning the wood. I’m usually pretty good about keeping the screen door closed.

Have your say...
