This is a custom table, made from a mixture of rough sawn and smooth sawn cedar. It was built for a Big Green Egg smoker, which has not yet been set into place. The space to the right, is a dry box, intended to house dry goods such as charcoal, wood chips, matches, grill tools, etc. The table top is made from smooth cedar, jointed and biscuited together for water tightness. The purpose of the trellis is two fold. One, it will provide a moderate amount of shade from the sun, and two, it will provide a surface for the owner to grow confederate jasmine over the top. The Owner has an already imaculate landscaping, and this will hopefully add some color and character their landscaping.

Looks great!
I made mine from teak in 1995 ,still good as new.
Hot smoke from the grill may kill the Ivy, but I like the trellis.

@Wdwerker, thank you. I have the same concerns about the ivy, but we will see. Like you said, the trellis still adds a unique touch.

Looks well made, but I hope I am not the only guy who is not familiar with a Big Breen Egg Smoker . . .

I’m told that the BGEs have quite a following.

Nice job on the table, Chad!

@nwbusa, thank you for the link. I should have done that before. I take it for granted because it is based in Georgia. If you do not have a Big Green Egg, it is an investment, but it is a lifetime investment. I promise you, once you have one, you will forget about any other cooking aparatus you may have. I have a $800 stainless steel grill that i have that has not been used in 3 or 4 years.

Happy smoking!
