Important information while building the Big Green Egg table:

Make sure to take proper safety precautions including always wearing gloves, goggles and a dust mask when you're cutting or sanding. Before you get started, please read our info on safety, fasteners and building tips.

  • Use fasteners and hardware that are in compliance with the manufacturer’s recommendations and the building codes for their intended use.
    • If the Big Green Egg table will be placed in constant, repetitive or long periods of wet conditions, only stainless steel fasteners should be used.
  • Do not use treated wood in applications where trapped moisture or water can occur.
  • Wash exposed skin areas thoroughly.
    • All sawdust and construction debris should be cleaned up and disposed of after construction.
  • Do not burn preserved wood because it could release toxic chemicals.

The DIY Big Green Egg table plan includes easy-to-follow instructions with corresponding pictures to ensure a smooth process. Find a summary of the steps below:

  1. Construct the frame starting with the legs. Using a miter square as you construct the legs can help ensure future steps align. It may be helpful to assemble on the floor.
  2. Assemble the shelf and brace supports. Gluing the edges along the way helps keep parts connected before you secure permanently. Create the shelf upside down – then flip and slide into supported frame.
  3. Lay out the lower and upper surface planks. Start with the back-left corner of the lower decking.
  4. Cut out the circle to fit the Big Green Egg®. Plans show the diameter for a 15”-wide Medium-sized Egg. Use a compass and jigsaw to measure and cut. If you don’t have a compass, check out the plan for tips to use a piece of scrap wood instead.
  5. Sand and finish. Ease sharp edges with a medium grit sanding block and apply preferred finish to the wood. (We recommend an annual application of water repellent, but you can also stain or paint. Then, you’re ready to grill in style all summer long with your new, custom Big Green Egg table.
