This was my first project a couple of years ago. Now I’m looking at adding a small or medium BGE to go along with my large, so I’ll be building myself a new table. I learned quite a bit during this build. Now I have a Kreg jig & this would have looked MUCH better using it.

It is great for what I have in it. I had the cypress already, so I just had to buy the 2 granite pieces. I have a 3’ 15a multi outlet extension cord mounted under the top, so when we have BBQ’s & need the blender outside I just run a cord to my table & & have 3 outlets for whatever is needed. I would have used the Kreg jig when building it if I had it to do over again. I would also build it to where I had an enclosed section to put my accessories for it. But, when I get ready to buy my smaller egg I’ll build my new table like I want it.

Yep – this is officially on my “to do” list. I have a large and a small BGE and I keep putting off building a table to hold both of them with some storage for the charcoal and utensils, as well as some room on top for a work surface.

Earl, How do you like having the large & small BGE? I’m trying to decide between getting the medium or small to go along with my large now.

this will also be one of my next projects. I’m going to egg fest next weekend for some inspiration. my current table is 14 years old and was made with pressure treated lumber, so it looks like crap now. I have teak, western red cedar and 2 granite slabs already. planning to make one with drawers and a cupboard door for the egg-cessories as well. There are some great examples of others’ work out there as well for inspiration.

I plan to do mine with teak for the top and western red for the frame and doors and drawers.

and so thinking of upgrading to a large egg (from my medium now)…
