I built this cabinet for my father to use on the back porch with his grille. It’s made from reclaimed cypress taken off the side of my neighbors house when remodeled. I also used cedar shingles on the side and stainless steel for the towel bars and the cabinet door handle. The tiles and hinges are just from home depot.

I found the plans on I think… not sure on the actual donor of the plans though.

That’s what my Bar-B-Que needs. I like the tile on top idea. Did you put water sealer on it?
Nice job!

I would love to find some reclaimed cypress. It has gotten expensive, and the good stuff, red cypress, is all but gone. The local dealers typically have only “paint grade” yellow cypress. Enough of my rant. Great job on the BBQ cabinet. Great place to serve up the goodies and store all the BBQ utensils and gadgets. I could fill it up pretty quick with all my BBQ junk.

I used plywood for the bottom, top and sides. I used gripper primer on them, that’s it. For the tile, I used silicone to glue them down and used a silicone grout in a caulk gun. Looks like they are really tiled in there but they can move with the temp changes.

I was so lucky to find this cypress. It was all a day away from the dump. I’m going to talk to some of the demo companies around here to work something out with them in the future.
