We have been doing a makeover for our yard by adding a stamped concrete patio and a gazebo. After moving my BBQ pit into place, I decided to build a cart that could serve as a prep station, work station and portable serving cart/dry bar or whatever it is needed for.

I used cedar for the frames (constructed using pocket hole construction). The pieces for the panels were made using cedar fence pickets that I planed and ripped, and then routed with a roundover bit to create a bead board look…well sorta.

Part of the cart is enclosed so I can store utensils and a container for the pellets for the Traeger Texas pit.

I built a custom handle using 1 inch pvc pipe so I an slip the end cap off and add a roll of paper towels.

A granite top with bull nose all around finished out the project.

I am very happy with the end result.

good looking cart. Someday I need to make one for my Green Egg so I will keep this one on hand for ideas.

Are you planning to use some kind of oil or finish on it?

Not sure. I may just let it weather naturally and spray it down with Thompson’s Water Seal.

Great job. I really like that you topped it with granite, easy to cut up veggies on and easy to clean. Beautiful.

Thank you. I had checked granite prices at several places. We also considered laying tile or pouring a solid concrete top. In the end, I fond a local company that had some pieces. They cut it to my specs and made the bull nose all around. $150 total. It turned out nice and I am glad we went that route.
