If you hate throwing stuff away and have a knack for making use of old things this project might be up your alley. I just had an old futon frame laying around and a few extra cedar decking boards that were taking up space I also had a need for a prep space near the grill. I use an old Webber charcoal grill with no space for prep work. I work on the old premise “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” so I got rid of the sleeping apparatus and added to my eating apparatus. Complete with casters, hooks for gloves and grill brushes, a wall mount bottle cap opener, bungee hooks to keep the charcoal bag upright and you’ve got the perfect custom BBQ cart. Since these photo’s were taken I put a few coats of CWF-UV5 cedear tone stain on it.

Looks good to me. Sleep is overrated anyway.

You could call it the RIBTON. I like it.

Nice work, and good going on the recycling front, you will find there are alot of people who don’t like to throw useable things away, myself being one of them.
