This started out as the Outdoor Multipurpose Cart....and after my hubbies evergrowing wishlist, it quickly become THE GRILL TROLLEY EXTRAVAGANZA!!!! I added the bulk and the height which he wanted, a John Boos butcher block 24x18, which is removable. Funny thing is, I also sampled Ana's Farmhouse frame to cradle the butcher block! I didn't want to put any holes in the 100 clam butcher block so it has it's own little bedframe. It's totally waterproofed and stained since it's new home will be beside the pool. I used all Kreg joints, so you could sit on this it's so sturdy. I also added 2.5 inch locking casters for the bottom. There's a stainless steel bathroom towel rack which doubles as a handle, lots of hooks for his BBQ paraphenelia, and the most important addition...The Guinness bottle opener. Totally hubby customized. And the best thing> I did it myself, setting it aside whenever a problem arose, but always coming back to it. This was originally a Papa's day present
150. (100 of it was just for the upgraded John Boos outdoor reversible butcher block! well worth it!)
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Thompson's Waterseal, Minwax Puritan Pine, 2 coats, but wiped it off very quickly, didn't want it too dark. I didn't want a uniform appearance, so I wet it down, heavier in some areas than others, with water, wiped the stain on, and was taking it off with the other hand.
