How to build 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 big egg table. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the horizontal braces and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the vertical legs. Align the edges with attention and make sure the corners are square.

Fitting the bottom supports

Next, you need to attach 2×4 supports to the base of the legs. Drill pilot holes and lock the components to the legs using 2 1/2″ screws. Add glue to enhance the bond of the components. The supports will create a base for installing the caster wheels, so that you can move the table easily.

Fitting the stretcher

Fitting the stretcher

Fit the 2×4 stretcher to the base of the table, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the bottom braces and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the stretcher. Center the stretcher to the braces.

Fitting the shelf

Fitting the shelf

Attach 1×6 slats to the bottom braces to create the shelf. Place a piece of 1/4″ plywood between the slats, to create even gaps. Drill pilot holes through the slats and insert 1 5/8″ screws into the braces.

Tabletop frame

Attach 1×6 aprons to the top of the legs, as shown in the plans. Drill pilot holes and secure the aprons to the legs using 1 5/8″ screws. In addition, insert 2 1/2″ screws through the aprons into the top support.

Attaching the tabletop slats

Attaching the tabletop slats

Attach 1×4 slats to the top of the big egg table. Leave about 1/8″ between the slats. Make sure the tabletop overhangs 1″ on all four sides of the frame. Drill pilot holes through the slats and secure them to the frame using 1 5/8″ screws.

Marking the cut line

Next, you need to cut out the hole for the XL green egg. Mark the center of the square and mark the cut line. Use a jigsaw to cut out the hole. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and round the edges with a router, for a more finished look.

Attaching the caster wheels

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.
