Building a green egg large
The first step of the project is to build the sides for the green egg table. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the horizontal braces and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the legs. Make sure the corners are square, before inserting the screws. Leave no gaps between the components and align the edges with attention.
Attach the 1×6 aprons to wooden table, as shown in the plans. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the legs are plumb and check if the corners are square.
Fit a 2×4 support to the top frame of the table. Drill pilot holes through the aprons and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the support.
Fit a 2×4 stretcher to the bottom braces, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the braces and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the stretcher.
Fit 1×6 slats to the bottom braces, to create the bottom shelf. Place a piece of 3/4″ plywood between the slats to create even gaps. Use 1 5/8″ screws to lock the slats to the supports.
Attach 1×6 slats to the top frame of the table. Leave 1″ on four edges of the table. Place a piece of 1/2″ plywood between the slats to create even gaps. Drill pilot holes through the slats and insert 1 5/8″ screws. Round the exposed edges with a router.
Mark the hole with a pencil and use a jigsaw to make the cuts. Smooth the edges with sandpaper. Use a router to round the edges of the hole.
Actually, this table is designed for a large green egg. For this particular example, A is 15″ and B is 21″. If you have a medium green egg, A is 13″ and B is 18″. For a XL egg, A is 12 1/2″ and B is 26 1/4″. Make sure you take the measurements before starting the actual project.
Place a paver under green egg, as shown in the plans.
The compact green egg table seen from above has a basic design. If you want something more unique, you can make a few modifications to the project.
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.
