Joe jr table

Recommended Posts

Have struggled for a while with bending over to reach the jr so decided a table was necessary. Got some reclaimed wood and found some plans online. Adjusted a little to scale it for the jr. Going ok so far. Still a bit to do in terms of sanding and finishing.

Looks great!  Invest in a belt sander and it will help you tremendously...sanded my dual table over 84" x 35" in less than an hour.  I think you can pick up a cheap-o (SKIL brand) from Walmart if you don't have one already for about $30 + belts @ 3 for $5. That wood, I would start with about 80 grit and work up to about 400 and you will probably be happy with it.  I took mine up to 800 grit, but for most that's probably overkill.

Great thanks for the advice! Father in law is lending me his but not sure about what to use so your numbering is a big help. Thanks!

That's a nice piece of work.  

 

I'm considering a Jr but I don't have anything to set it on.  See https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/41135-taller-stand-for-joe-jr/?tab=comments#comment-518229

 

I wish KJ would just make a taller stand with castors, but I suppose it would be tippy.

does anyone have the specs on this grill table?

 

I got the initial plans from here - https://jenwoodhouse.com/diy-kamado-grill-table/ and just changed the measurements/ratios to what suited my space and what was appropriate for the jr. 

 

If I can find my original measurements I’ll post them. 

 

First cook this evening was a few pizzas for the family. The improved height made it MUCH easier to do then when I’ve done them before. 

 

Was a little antsy with the first high heat cook in the wooden table but all seemed ok. Have a good inch gap around the circumference and lined the inside of the circular cutout with gasket replacement tape. The joe is sitting on a few ceramic plant pot feet, on top of a paving stone.
