This was initially intended to be a BBQ cart but I wasn’t sure if I’ll manage to attach the wheels well, so I went for a more straightforward project with simple C-shape legs. Now, I’m happy I made it this way, because it’s still useful and looks more natural. A cheap, almost free to make table that would be a great backyard addition to help you make your barbecue experience more convenient and stylish in the same time – at least this is how it worked out for me.
The materials I used:
1 used wooden pallet
2 steel rods (I preferred flat ones)
First thing I did was to remove nails which was sticking out. Then, some cleaning of the pallet’s surface, because it was a used one – that included sanding as well. During processing some parts fell off, so I brought them back together using the wood glue. I softened the pallet’s corners for added security and comfort. Lacquer came next.
I shaped both flat rods to form the C-shape. Then I drilled all 8 holes for the screws – 4 on each rod, 2 on each side of a c-shaped steel leg. Mounted both legs to the finished pallet (table top).
To be honest, this BBQ table is of great help when I’m grilling in the summer. It serves as additional space for ready food and mixes quite well with my wooden chairs and other outdoor furnishing.
