Not the fanciest carpentry work, but not too shabby for an amateur...if I may say so myself. :) Comes in very handy. I had to recently lay my CG to rest, so I had the extra space for the table. Saved me a pile of money building it on my own.

Very nice! What kind of wood and finish did you use? Are the casters adjustable so that you can always keep it stable?

When you get your BGE really hot inside how hot does the exterior surface get?

And I'm in line behind Eddie!!

Great looking table, Dyal. Got a question. I was in Wal-Mart this weekend (only place to find Royal Oak around these parts) and they had a grill gazebo very similar to yours. Ballpark how much did you pay? I think they wanted $140ish for the one I saw.

Thx y'all! Brad, I just used untreated pine studs and finished it with Olympia Stain and Sealer. The wheels don't have adjusters, but they do have brakes. The perimeter doesn't get super duper hot, and the ceramic is well insulated. But I haven't taken the egg over 450 yet to find out the maximum sustainable heat. The bottom is sitting on steel straps (for air flow), then a patio stone, then a spark resistant mat, then the table. The mat helps keep the wood clean from dirty grates too.

Griffin, I saw that gazebo too. It didn't appear to be very sturdy. Ordered mine off of Amazon for $400 after shipping I think.

Eddie, if you make a pizza with feta cheese on it, I'll build you one. ;)

Dang if that's all it takes.....I think that's pretty much like a contract. I'm making a pizza with feta on it just for the table :)

Mmmm...think I'll pass on that gazebo then. I could have sworn you got yours at Sam's and I figured Sam's and Wal-Mart...aren't they owned by the same people? So maybe it was the same one. Guess I'm wrong. I'll pass then.

Grif, maybe you are thinking of the one SCBBQBill had? His came from SAMs. Mine is the Eclipse Backyard Grilling Station. Here is a link where we talked about it before. I took a few pix of my setup.

Dyal,

Very nice looking table, glad you used the paver brick for the bottom, I am researching building table for my egg and I have seen lots of photo's of people that didn't use a brick and had a fire.

I am going with a table made out of patio pavers and I am going to pour a cement countertop for it. kind of excited to get it started.
