Last week, we tackled the kitchen, and this week, it's grill time!

From now until Christmas, we'll be sharing a brand new, free Christmas wood craft plan that is intended for gifting as part of the Handbuilt Holiday series put on by Jaime Costiglio and I.  We've added literally dozens of projects over the years, so do check out all the projects in our Handbuilt Holiday series here.

We are so excited to share with you today a brand new grill plan!

The plans follow, lots more photos and build step pics by Jamie Costiglio here.

Enjoy and do share if you build!
