Hi I just joined to the lumberjocks community because I like woodworking projects. I want to share my first project that is an outdoor table for a big green egg. I used as an example a project that is posted also here. I used pine wood and all the joints were made with kj tools and screws. I added two drawers, one big for the plate setter and a hiden drawer for a baking stone. Also for hot stuff coming out of the egg, I added a granite black stone that gives a nice look. There is also a two door compartment to store bigg stuff like charcoal container, wood chips, etc. I was not sure what paint to use because this will be on the exterior so at the end I decided to use a semi-transparent stain and used an oxford brown that my wife choose. Now is ready for christmas…

I have recently built a Big Green Egg table myself, though not as fancy as yours. I haven’t posted it on here yet simply because I don’t have my Egg in it yet. I have to get it from my shop to my house to get the Egg, and currently there is about 6 inches of snow on the ground. I have considered building another one if I can sell the one I have already. I might take some inspiration from yours on the next one if you don’t mind.

The most helpful thing I know to tell you is for the large Big Green Egg the hole needs to be 21” diameter and 17” off the base. Thats just what I’ve read, like I said I haven’t actually set mine in the table yet. The other thing I wish I had known before I built it is supposedly the egg can’t sit on a wood surface. I really don’t think the bottom of it gets even close to hot enough to ignite wood so I’m not going to worry about it, but if I make another one I will keep that in mind. I see Balduino’s egg sits on ceramic feet, that might be a good solution. The main difference between mine and others I have seen is the base of mine where the egg will sit is set back a few inches to allow me to put a bucket under the front of it to scrape ashes out into.

very nice! I’m going to be building a new table for my egg this year as well. Probably shamelessly steal some of your ideas as well… :-)

Great looking table! What was the basic plan that you modified? I’d love to make one for my egg.

Wow, beautiful job. I hope my skills become as good as yours. Keep posting.

BTW, I’m also a hobbist woodworker in the Monterrey area (Santa Catarina, to be exact). It would be a good idea to form a community here to share ideas and work in projects as a group. I bet we can tackle more complicated projects working as a group (And it will be cheaper).

Would you happen to have plans for this? My father and I would like to guild one for our green eggs!

Have your say...
