Needed a BBQ station for my small charcoal BBQ. The local big box had 1×6x8 treated decking on sale, so I took advantage of the price. Only cost $39 for the wood. The design is a modified plan from I used M/T joints on the main frame vice using 3 pieces of wood to sandwich a joint. Measurement are roughly 42” wide, 23” Deep, and 38” tall. Used plywood for a false top on the right side to measure out the hole to provide support and clearance for the BBQ insert. The clips that fit up into the base of the BBQ are re-manufactured holders that slid on a wall mount bracket for the garage wall – to hold rakes, and other yard tools. A bigger hammer helped reshape them. The straightened fingers fit under the lip of the BBQ. The height of the clips provided about 3/4” clearance for air flow around the BBQ. Finished with two coats of spar varnish. Will consider the purchase of a cover if this wonderful wet Florida weather starts to work on the finish. The last pic shows the shelf being enclosed to hide the utensils and chimney charcoal starter. Sides and back are made using fence pickets while the door is two and 1/4 pieces of the pine decking material. Two magnets are installed to keep the door shut. Two coats of spar varnish finish it.

This turned out nicely and would be a great addition to anyone’s deck.
