We recently bought a new gas grill to replace our old cheapie one that rusted out. It’s a small model that requires a tabletop or a stand. Unfortunately the Weber barbecue grill cart sold separately for this grill is $100. I knew I could make something nicer for half that price.
This barbecue grill cart is beg enough to hold two propane tanks on the lower shelf. I like to have two tanks in case one runs out in the middle of cooking a meal. I’ve included an elevated platform for utensils and plates and the whole unit is mobile, using the wheels from the old grill.
I made this using 1×4 and 2×4 lumber from the home center.
After cutting most of the pieces to length, I drilled holes in one end of each of the upper table frame. These will hold the dowel handle. I clamped the two boards together and cut both holes at once to ensure they would line up properly.
I cut a curve on the end of each of these using my bandsaw.
I assembled the top frame and the lower frame into simple boxes using pocket screws.
I curved the ends of the two feet. These, and the rear uprights are made from 2x4s. They get glued and screwed into the table frames.
I used the wheels from the old cart and attached them using a threaded rod.
I glued the dowel handle in place and attached a frame to the upright for the utensil platform.
To protect everything, I covered all the surfaces with a transparent redwood deck stain and sealer, then screwed all the plans into place on the frames.
