I made this so my Weber Q 120 would have a place to sit. The stock carts were not suiting my tastes so I made my own out of dimensional Cedar. The cart is overall 29.5” tall. The top frame is 22”x14” and the bottom frame is 29”x14”. The legs are angled at 10 degrees. The slats are 1×3 cedar, rough sawn on the exposed side. There is a support brace in the middle of the bottom frame so that it can hold the weight of a 20# propane tank if I decide to go that route.

6 Month update (third picture): I finally put on a few finishing touches. I made a handle out of some scrap cedar. I applied a UV protecting deck stain that is clear with a cedar tint. I also went with a propane tank because the little bottles were always running out.

Looks like it will do the job nicely. I like building outdoor furniture out of dimensional lumber too. I don’t worry so much about making mistakes when I’m not paying big $$ for the lumber.

This is very nice and I’d like to make something similar for my small grill. Do you have more build pictures? How did you connect the corner miters? Are the slats free floating on a dado groove?

Added pictures of the underside. The corner miters are biscuited with lots of glue. The slats are in a dado groove but fastened with a brad nailer. One flaw that I wish I would have noticed during the build was forgetting to clip the corners up the support posts back to 90 degrees so they would butt up against the sides of the bottom frame. If you look closely you can see how I had to fill in the gaps on the tops with little wedges.
