The only thing I love more than woodworking is barbecue and my favorite way to cook it is on a kamado grill. After I got my XL Big Green Egg, I just had to build a stand worthy of it. Made from Sapele, this stand is beefy enough to take the substantial weight of a large ceramic grill and then some. The cloud lifts in the rails hint at Greene & Greene influence and take the humble BGE Table to a whole new level. I designed the table specifically for an XL Big Green Egg but you can certainly adapt it to any size or brand kamado you like. I also made sure the stand is compatible with the protective covers Big Green Egg makes for their own tables. If you want to make your own XL Big Green Egg Table, check out our plan and templates.

Sorry, no show notes.

This set of Nesting Tables is a little more delicate and “artistic” than my usual stuff. I spent a lot of time consulting with two design-savvy friends in hopes of coming up with something that was visually compelling when nested together as well as when separated. So thanks to John Funk and Brian Benham for their assistance. These tables are somewhat delicate with regard to the side designs but overall they’re pretty sturdy. Mortise and tenon joints hold everything together and the sides offered some fun opportunities in segmented ring construction.

If you’re interested in the full set of videos and plans, head on over to the Wood Whisperer Guild site to learn more.

My wife and I moved into a new home and since both boys are out of the house we have two bedrooms to play with. Alaina wanted a Thomas Mosier, “New Century China” bed that costs around $6,000. I decided I’d try to sort of copy the idea using $60 worth of materials from the big box store. Then if it worked out, I’d spend real money for Cherry or Sapele. I’m no Thomas Mosier, nor am I a Marc Spagnulo… but the bed turned out very nice. Since all I had to go by were internet photos, I had to guess the dimensions and scale. Clearly I didn’t get it right, but it actually turned out to be a very attractive piece of furniture. I used my Domino XL and knock-down connectors to attach the headboard and footboard to the side rails. I used the XL’s huge tenons to connect everything else. Essentially I milled down 2×8 douglas fir and laminated the pieces to create all the parts that were thicker than 1 1/4″ (which was almost everything). Then I sat down and sketched out the dimensions for the headboard design and footboard parts. I carefully measured everything and cheated by using the domino to connect it all together. The finish was built-up using “General Finishes” products. I hand-brushed a stain-block primer and hand sanded the first coat with 220. Then I applied a second coat to stop tanin bleed-through. I lightly sanded it to 300 then applied four coats of “China Blue” milk paint topped with a single coat of Enduro Var to warm it up.
