Default Our Yard Makeover, Part 6 - BBQ Cart

Here is my sketch of a cart I intend to build as soon as all of this rain moves out.

The cart will sit by the BBQ pit and provide storage for my cooking pellets and utensils. It will also provide a shelf for a tub or crate or whatever.

The top will be 24 x 36 inches. Should make a nice work surface. I am currently searching for a source for cheep granite. That may or may not materialize. I am not paying $200 for a piece this small with a bull nose all around. So it may turn out to be just cut and polished. Or, I may put tile on top and grout it in, then seal it.

More pics coming soon.

Mike:

Have you tried talking to some contractors, that do kitchen remodel in your area. Maybe you can get a tearout from one of their jobs.

I did that for a small piece I needed a few years ago. Got the piece for free, just had to pay a guy to cut it for me... cost a case of beer.

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Pretty soon Mike'll be moving to a bigger plot and starting all over again.. lol

I just starting hitting granite places with measurements in hand and asked about remnants they had laying around. They all had em and the 4th place had a piece that could be cut to my size with a price I could live with.

Danny's idea is a good one, the cut out for a sink is just about that size. A local stone or tile shop must have scraps that size also.

I have the cutout for our sink but it isn't big enough.

Hope all your hard work doesn't float away in the rains. Sounds a bit rough in the general Houston area.
