Some friends and family of mine all bought Big Green Eggs (you can google it if you don’t know what I’m talking about) but the stand that came with the grill wasn’t big enough for them. So I looked into it and tables similar to these from manufactures ran for around $750. I figured I could build one for less than that and it would fulfill their needs of a larger work area for grilling. I found some suggested measurements and designs online for these tables and came up with my own. Total cost per table was under $200. I made them out of cedar and coated them with Tompson’s Water Seal twice. One important thing that is missing from these pictures is the concrete slab that sits on the lower deck below the hole where the Egg sits. I used 16” stepping stones. The bottom of these Eggs is where the fire is located and where the Egg comes in contact with the wood could set the table on fire. That is why it is very important to put a concrete barrier under the egg!

Hope y’all like it

Some friends and a family of yours should be feeding you lots of good food off of their Big Green Egg ;0)

That cedar should last a long time. I recently refinished my mahogany Egg table. Good tip on the concrete between the Egg and the table. Things get real hot when you’re searing steaks at 800 degrees. Nice work!

The tables look good and well made. Great idea on the concrete slab. Your friends are very lucky to get one.
