Small Big Green Egg Table Plans

This step by step diy woodworking project is about small big green egg table plans. Create a beautiful wooden table for your small green egg, that has caster wheels and a large storage shelf attached to it. You can build this table in just one weekend with common household tools and under 100 $ worth of raw materials (if you go with cedar, pine is a lot cheaper). Make sure you take a look over the rest of plans to see alternatives and more projects for your garden.

Work with attention and don’t forget that a good planning will save you from many issues and it will keep the costs withing the total budget. Invest in high quality materials, such as pine, redwood or cedar. Drill pocket holes before inserting the galvanized screws, to prevent the wood from splitting. Add waterproof glue to the joints, in order to enhance the rigidity of the structure.

Building a big green egg table

Building the sides of the table

Building the sides of the table

The first step of the project is to build the sides for the table. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the horizontal braces and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the legs. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square. Leave no gaps between the components.

Fitting the stretcher

Fitting the stretcher

Drill pilot holes through the bottom braces and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the stretcher. Make sure the corners are square and edges are flush.

Lower shelf

Lower shelf

Attach 1×6 slats to the bottom braces. Place the slats equally-spaced, drill pilot holes at both ends and secure them to the braces with 1 5/8″ screws.

Building the tabletop frame

Building the tabletop frame

Continue the project by fitting the 2×4 aprons to the big green egg table. Drill pilot holes through the aprons, align the edges and insert 2 1/2″ screws. Afterwards, attach the 2×4 partition to the top frame. Drill pilot holes through the aprons and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the partition. Make sure the corners are square.

Fitting the tabletop slats

Fitting the tabletop slats

Attach 1×6 slats to the top of the wooden table, making sure you place them equally spaced. In addition, the tabletop should overhang 1/4″ on the front and back of the frame and 1″ on both sides. Drill pilot holes through the slats and insert 1 5/8″ screws into the frame.

Marking the cut line

Marking the cut line

Mark the center of the square and mark the circle with a pencil. Use a jigsaw to get the job done.

Fitting the diagonal supports

Fitting the diagonal supports

Build the supports from 2×4 lumber, making sure you cut both ends at 45 degrees. Fit the supports to the frame and lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws, after drilling pilot holes. In addition, attach the tabletop slats to the diagonal supports.

Caster supports

Caster supports

Fit 2×4 supports to the frame of the table, as shown in the plans. Use glue and 2 1/2″ nails/screws to lock the supports into place.

Fitting the caster wheels

Fitting the caster wheels

Attach caster wheels to the bottom of the legs. Center the wheels to the surface and use screws to secure them into place.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-150 grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the table from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain.
