Big Green Egg Table #3

This is my latest Big Green Egg table. I have actually done a couple more like the first few that I posted, but this one is a little different. My customer liked the original design but I felt liked they needed something more unique. I decided to do a solid top out of 2 inch thick western red cedar. I kregged and glued together 6-2×6 boards and then cut the top out with a jigsaw. I eased all the curves with a belt sander and my trusty 5 inch orbital. I hand cut two custom corbels to act as supports for the overhang on the backside of the table. They may be hard to see in the pictures but they turned out real nice. The base is cypress and I finished the whole thing with 2 coats of Cabots timber oil. The two granite inserts are Uba-tuba black granite that compliments the color of the cypress quite nicely. This is the first table that I actually had to set up so I finally got a few finished shots with the egg in place. Happy customer.

nice. I gather the sides of the egg do not get hot. Great job.

Man, I want a BGE soo bad and now seeing your cart, I need one in my life more than ever. Great project that deserves a rack of smoked ribs and a couple of cold adult beverages.

My dad loves his Green Egg. “Best grill in the world hands down”
I’d imagine he would LOVE a cabinet like this. Nice work.

Very impressive! I built mine from Teak with brass screws in 1995. Haven’t had to do anything to it since. Love my Big Green Egg, the company is based here in Atlanta!

Don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be around when the egg comes out of the bird that laid that . . .

Nice job! I’m sure it’s being put to good use this summer!

Great design and well built. I like the extra touches. The 2” top really gives it a strong look. All the woodgrain in the cypress shows up nice. Thanks Todd for sharing.

The egg does get hot.
Three or four strategically placed dabs of silicone caulk to keep the egg centered in the opening would be good.
That material will withstand 600 degrees and will insulate the wood at the same time.

Awesome! I’m thinking about building a station like this. Do you by any chance have any plans for this design?
