For this project, my aim was to use things I had to build it. At the beginning of Lockdown (May 2020), we bought a gas Weber BBQ. It didn’t come with a stand so I decided to build my own.
The frame was reclaimed timber from a stable that I had helped pull down and clear. From this, I used some 2″x3″ timber as I discovered when I cleaned up the sides on the saw bench the wood had a lovely pink/red color so I cleaned up several lengths and made two sides. Using a miter saw to trench cut the joints I then glued them. I also used the same timber along the bottom to join the two ends together.
The top of this table is a piece of solid oak worktop but it was the bit cut out for a sink so it was waste material. I made up a jig for my router and cut out a recess in the worktop to inlay some leftover tiles that we had and I routed a bevel edge on the top.
The bottom shelf is made from pallet planks nice and simple.
I decided I wanted a door to hide the gas bottle so I used some pallet type packing crates for the wood. In my usual fashion, I cleaned up the edges and made it all square with the saw bench then glued a load together. trimmed this up on the saw and added two bits onto the sides. this is all held by glue. My wife found the yellow knob in the house somewhere? and I bought two hinges for it.
The next bit was a drawer. made from a couple of bits of the good straight square pallet with bits of the hardwood packing crate as a drawer front. The handle I found in the shed.
Last bit was to add a shelf made from packing crate planks, all glued.
The whole thing has been sealed with Danish Oil.
