I made one about 20 year ago and it's still in use. Just give it a coat of glossy white latex every two years. It's made from a rectangle of 3/4 ACX plywood about 3 in wider than the od of the kettle. Then cut an arc in it. Use the Weber lid to draw it. Two 1\2 in x 5 in pieces of  sheet metal are bent to make a couple of hooks to hang on the side of the kettle base and fastened to the underside of the table. 1X2 firring strips make the edge molding for the table top. Two pieces of 1 1\2 schedule 40 PVC pipe makes the legs. Four PVC end caps are needed, one for each end of the pipe. Drill and fasten one of the end caps to the bottom of the two far corners of the table. You may have to grind a flat spot on the end caps.Insert the legs. No need to glue anything. Cut PVC pipe so that the table angles downwards towards the kettle slightly, That's it.

 

God bless auto correct spellin

They look pretty simple to build - are you trying to find plans you can follow?

This is the table I build.  Pretty simplistic design:

Here's one that I built this weekend. It needs a few tweaks, but I'm gonna use it awhile before I make any changes.

How close is the wood to the grill? Is there an issue with the wood getting too hot?

The grill is suspended from the table with angle brackets, so it's within 1" at 4 places. I haven't noticed any issue with the heat yet, and I've cooked steaks at a high temp several times now. If it becomes an issue, I may need to adjust a little.
