    Easy BGE Table Plans from the Naked Whiz

    Tutorial located here: Big Green Egg Cart

    Plans For Building Whiz Flash-Burn’s Way Cool Technicolor Barbecue Table



    Level 1.02 Copyright 2007,2009 www.nakedwhiz.com

    Introduction

    Thank you for your interest in building the world’s most popular table for Big Green Egg cookers!
    (We just made that up.)

    These plans are not a complete set of directions. They are meant to
    accompany the narrative located on our web site at:
    http://www.nakedwhiz.com/cart.htm.

    You should read and understand the information contained at that location in conjunction with the
    information contained in these plans.

    Disclaimers

    The dimensions on these plans have all been provided to the best of our ability, however, we did
    have to measure our table after the fact. So, some dimensions may be approximate and you
    should test fit and measure carefully when building your table. We do not recommend cutting
    pieces of wood to the exact dimensions listed in the materials list without first measuring and test
    fitting during construction.

    Please be careful when you use power tools to make this project. We do not advocate any
    dangerous practices or shortcuts, regardless of anything you may see on our web page showing
    how we built this table.

    Scaling the plans for other size cookers

    The plans show the appropriate measurements to construct this table for Large, Medium and Small
    Big Green Egg cookers. If you wish to alter the plans to make a table for an XL Big Green Egg,
    you will need to make major alterations as the depth of the table must be adjusted to 32”, the hole
    in the top surface must be 26-1/4”, and Dimension “X” (see page 7 of the plans) must be 12-1/2”.

    What are all those holes for?

    Obviously, the large round hole in the top surface is for the cooker. Obviously.

    The 18-1/8” inch square hole in the top surface is for an 18”x18” tile. This will give you somewhere
    to set hot pans or other items that you don’t want to set on the wood. You can use whatever
    material suits you. You could use a square sheet of slate, a square sheet of granite or other
    counter-top material, or whatever.

    The 18” x 24” inch hole in the lower shelf is for a sheet of slate to go under the cooker. See the
    photo on the title page to see what goes in each opening.

    Master Materials List

    The materials required for each page of the plans are listed on those pages. Here is a master list
    for the project. We started with about 45 board-feet of 4/4 red oak, S2S and 10 board-feet of 8/4
    red oak, S2S. If you go to a lumber yard, you should ask for “Four quarter” and “Eight quarter”
    oak, “surfaced two sides”:

    Table Top
    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 57”
    4 – 4” x 7/8” x 6-3/4”
    4 – 4” x 7/8” x 32-1/8”

    Upper Frame
    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 55”
    6 – 4” x 7/8” x 22-1/4”
    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 18-1/8”
    4 – 2” x 7/8” x 1801/8” for the cleats

    Lower Shelf (Option “A”)
    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 57”
    4 – 4” x 7/8” x 30-1/8”
    4 – 4” x 7/8” x 8-3/4”

    Lower Shelf (Option “B”)
    1 – 4” x 7/8” x 57”
    5 – 4” x 7/8” x 30-1/8”
    5 – 4” x 7/8” x 8-3/4”

    Lower Frame (Option “A”)

    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 55”
    6 – 4” x 7/8” x 22-1/4”
    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 18-1/8”

    Lower Frame (Option “B”)

    2 – 4” x 7/8” x 55”
    6 – 4” x 7/8” x 22-1/4”
    3 – 4” x 7/8” x 18-1/8”

    Legs
    2 – 4” x 1-7/8” x 31-1/2”
    2 – 4” x 1-7/8” x 30-1/2”

    Miscellaneous Items
    2 – Home Depot 10” Hand Truck Tires
    1 – 36” x 5/8” threaded rod

    Assorted washers and nuts to install tires.
    1 – 18” x 18” tile
    1 – 18” x 24” sheet of slate
    1 lb 1-1/2” SS Phillips head screws
    1 lb 2-1/2” SS Phillips head screws

    Wood glue
    Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane

    A word about the screws.

    We are trying to remember what we did for screws. On our web page
    we list both 1-1/2” and 2-1/2” galvanized deck screws. However, we know we ended up using
    stainless steel screws. We think we used the longer screws wherever we were screwing into the
    end grain of a board, such as in assembling the upper and lower frames. We probably used the
    shorter screws otherwise, such as when screwing the top shelf boards onto the frame.

    I picked up a SS kitchen table cheap off CL. Does not look as nice, but I've got $50 and 1 hr cutting time.

    I followed those same plans......with a few minor changes (centered the Egg, no cutting board and used casters). I'm not exactly a woodworker but, it was really easy. I put prolly 10-12 hrs into the build.

    That looks awesome, the Egg has been the greatest gift my Wife has ever given me, it gets used rain or shine, hot or cold.

    I'd like to buy him for what he's worth, and sell him for what he thinks he's worth.
