This project was a blast! A friend got this green egg and we wanted to make a great little portable station for his house. This thing is on casters and can be moved easily in and out of his garage. We used all rough western red cedar and milled most of it ourselves in the shop. The wood was reclaimed from a commercial building following a renovation. The whole thing is very light weight, I think the egg is about as heavy as the grill station itself.

Doesn’t it get hot?

I like the idea, but worry about the heat.

Jroot, it does get hot but so far it has not been an issue. The table has been in use for about a year and so far so good. Maybe because of the thick ceramic walls of the egg it doesn’t get as traditionally hot to the touch as traditional metal grills? Good question, the answer is that it “just works”.
