Introduction: DIY Weber Grill Cart BBQ Station
This grill cart features a sturdy wooden base with an opening for a round charcoal grill, I used a Weber. The cart also has wheels so you can move it and a rack for pushing / holding tools. If you're looking for a better outdoor cooking experience, then this is perfect as it gives space for chopping, storing etc! Overall this is a great weekend project because it's pretty quick to put together, and if you're organized it can definitely be done in a couple of hours.
Step 1: Cleaning the Grill
The first thing I did was to clean the old grill. I sprayed it with water, scrubbed it with coarse steel wool and really focused on some rusty spots, and then I spray painted all those areas with some heat resistant black paint.
Then I took the grill apart, and removed the wheels - I'm going to be using those for the cart to make it movable.
Step 2: The Wood
Next up, the wood. I cut all the pieces to length on the miter saw, so they were all ready to assemble.
Step 3: Steel Pipes
OK, so I've got some steel pipes and connectors here. This is for a handle for pulling the cart and to work as a towel bar. Here I'm cleaning them up with some denatured alcohol before being spray painting, and I used an oil rubbed bronze color.
Step 4: The Top
Now, let's start putting this thing together! I started with assembling the top together. I put in two supporting pieces first underneath, and then put down the top pieces which I screwed down. Next I'm using a large compass, and I'm making a circle that is just a touch smaller than the grill's diameter. Then when I knew where the grill would come out to, I could mark and attach the last support piece. (watch the video for a clearer demonstration)
Step 5: The Legs
For the legs I'm putting together two 2x4s which I screw together. Two of the legs will be slightly shorter than the others to account for the wheels.
And here are the leg sections. I'm also going to add some support pieces in the middle, and then the wheels on the ends.
Step 6: The Wheels
Now before I left home, I drilled some very small holes in a steel rod, and the wheels will slide on the rod, and these cotter pins will make sure they stay in place. Then I drilled a hole in the two shorter legs for the rod to come through, and then I secured it with the pins.
Step 7: Cutting the Hole
OK, so time to cut out the hole for the grill with my jig saw.
I began with drilling a started hole, and then I followed along the marked circle with the jig saw.
Initially I had planned on putting in several screws in the wood to prevent direct contact with the wood. But after looking at it, I realized that the grill only touched a couple of areas, because the circle was not perfectly even, so I decided to skip that. There is no danger with this and if any scorching actually did occur it will be easy to add the small screws to decrease the contact.
Step 8: Bottom Shelf
I also decided to add some cap pieces on the ends to the cart to finish it off a bit.
On the underside I'm adding some cedar fence boards for a shelf, and this is where I picture you would store extra charcoal and things like that.
Step 9: Sanding
Next up - sanding, mostly on the top to make it nice and smooth.
Step Finishing Touches
Now remember the cart handle I painted, well here I have it assembled and just screwing this bar in on the side of the cart. And you can hold on to this when moving the cart, or use it to hang tools or whatever. Lastly I put on a thick coat of spar polyurethane on the whole cart to protect it from the elements.

Weber Q cart/table ideas?
For example, when I camp with my travel trailer, I take along a 2'x4' portable table for my grill center. I used to put the Q on the table, but I found when trying to do bacon and pancakes or run the waffle maker with butter, oil, utensils, paper towels, etc the table got extremely crowded. I have since started taking a folding cart along. That puts the grill just off to the side and allows me the entire table top for accessories, accouterments and space for food prep.
Introduction: Wooden Weber Q Stand
BBQ stand to suit Weber Q or any small portable bbq of choice.
Includes storage and preparation surface.
Step 1: INTRO - Design
My aim was to build a wooden stand for my Weber BBQ.
I decided to incorporate storage for tools, spices, sauces, and cleaning equipment, aswell as under bbq storage for hotplate and pizza stone! The first thing I did was design the project in Google Sketchup and Cinema 4D
The preparation surface will include a granite stone for meat prep.
Step 2: Constructing the Frame
I began by cutting 2 lengths of 42x32 Merbau at mm, and 4 lengths at mm.
I then marked and cut the Mortise and Tenon joints as shown, then glued and clamped the frame together.
Step 3: Constructing the Two 'Boxes'
The 'boxes' are constructed from mm lengths of x19 Blackbutt timber boards.
I prepared the boards by marking and cutting biscuit joints on a large flat surface, then clamping and gluing the boards to make 4 flat slabs.
These were then planed flat and cut to length using a circular saw.
I then glued the boards together as shown
To fit the granite stone slab I constructed a frame around the stone, and routered out a recess to fit a piece of mdf to the underside of the frame.
Step 4: Legs
The legs are constructed from recycled deck posts.
Prepare the posts by squaring them using a thicknesser.
I positioned them as desired, and used a diagonal lap joint to connect them together.
I also cut lap joints at the tops of the legs for the frame to sit on.
Using a forstner drill bit I bored holes so that the bolts holding the legs together would sit flush with the surface. (it is a good idea to drill a small pilot hole so that the bolt holes line up.
Step 5: Assembly
I drilled some dowels and used them to line the 'boxes' up with the frame, they will just sit on it and not be glued, allowing for easy disassembly.
The legs are then joined to the frame and boxes using bolts and coach screws.
To get a good surface finish I used an orbital sander with fine paper. Any outdoor furniture oil or vanish can then be applied to create a strong durable surface.
The granite stone can be held in using clear silicone, or sat in without attachment so it can be cleaned.
