Table for Big Green Egg

This is a table I made for my Big Green Egg bbq grill. Turned it out in a weekend. Was very proud of how it turned out. Everything was square and solid. The electrical banks (covers) are for magnetic task lights and remote thermometers.

Just love my pocket hole jig for projects like this. I now have two orders from friends and one for my son. He has a small version of the Big Green Egg... he's 4.

Added some snaps for a tarp cover and a bottle opener accessory.

Yeah man. Love those eggs. I am still working on design details for my BBQ cart to use with the trailer rig / backyard stuff and my 'dera.... Too many projects, not enough time! I figured if I would mention burning wood to cook food here I might get lynched though...

One of the guys from my old church used to mill his own stuff, and the milling "waste" was cut up and put to the smoker. But there are guys here that turn stuff so small, that anything bigger than a wood shaving is usable to them...

That cart looks really good! Do you have a measured drawing for that? Obviously without the egg in the middle, I wouldn't need the hole, but that would be a GREAT place to put a back / back cabinet for holding spices, misc cookware and cleaning garb...

I think next weekend I am gonna smoke up a fatty and a brisket on the 'dera, and get to some more build projects... Not sure though. The wife wants to get away from the house. I don't blame her. We have pretty much been home bodies since January working on projects and getting the house in order...

BTW... Where did you get that Fender bottle opener? I would LOVE to have one! (actually about a half dozen for gift projects...)

Bottle opener is from eBay.

Go to www.nakedwhiz.com or the BGE Web site for pictures, drawings and step by step for different table ideas.

Finished the build on my son's table for his Little Green Egg. Need to give it a quick sand, finish it, and add wheels.

We won the Small Egg at a banquet.

The Eggs are thick ceramic. The outsides don't get that how. Big Green Egg sells a table similar to this one.

that's easily a few hundred dollars you won. wow. you got lucky.

yes I know it's solid egg but it must still be hot on the outside.

I guess I wouldn't think so unless I had one.
