Hey Lumberjocks,
I have enclosed pics of the BBQ workstation (kitchen counter height 35”) that I made recently. This is an outdoor project and is supposed to have an outdoor/rough look; i.e. not fine furniture. The top is a two inch thick live edge walnut slab that I picked up last year in Rodeo Ca. I split it down the middle and placed a small slab of Madrone (from Foresthill, Ca.) in the middle. The entire slab had to be planed and resurfaced top and bottom to the point you see it now. I built a frame work from pressure treated lumber and skinned the frame with two different rough sawn redwoods, different thicknesses as well. I left the redwood as is, mill marks and all. At this point the finish is a Tung Oil. The last picture is prior final sanding and Tung Oil.
Thanks for checking out the Outdoor BBQ station

Came out nice. I like the thickness and the live edge. Great job on the finish as well.

But, you could at least have christened it with a bottle of Booker’s :)

I keep saying I need to build one of these but I haven’t made it far enough down the “to-do” list. Yours looks great and offers a different perspective with the walnut slab. I’m curious what the back side looks like – are there doors, or drawers for storage?

Sorry for the delay in responding -travel.
The back is wide open, with the exception of some stout bracing. No shelving, although that would be easy to add in. Doors were not required and since it’s outdoors, open is better – less chance of being surprised by a critter. Jimmy Diresta made one of these for a tasting celebration in Arizona – much inspiration from that build.
