It’s that time of year when everything tastes better straight off the grill. Cooking fresh vegetables, burgers and hot dogs on the grill while standing in the warm weather is always so much fun. But what I don’t like is having to take six trips back and forth to the kitchen to bring out all my grilling stuff. Hence the birth of this outdoor grill cart.
Outdoor Grill Cart
I wanted a cart that I could wheel in and out of the house so that I could load up any of my grilling supplies and wheel them back out to the patio in one load. This is also beneficial if you’ve ended up with 4 or 5 plates of food that you need to wheel back into the house.
This outdoor grill cart is really easy to make. It would also make a great Father’s Day present for someone in your life!
I started by making all the cuts for the entire project. The whole cart is made from 1x4s. For this, I used a Dremel Sawmax for all my cuts. I could have used a fixed saw, but because each cut was short and quick, it was easier to freehand the cuts. The Sawmax is super accurate, quick and has lots of other capabilities of cutting other materials.
I started by building the frame of the grill cart using my Kreg K4 Pocket Hole Jig. Using pocket holes ensures the cart will be structurally solid. I built the sides, then connected them together, added short boards for the two bars and then nailed on the boards for the top and bottom.
I didn’t sand any of the boards down before I built the cart. Instead, I decided to use the sanding attachment on the Dremel MultiMax. This allowed me to sand everything smooth together and saved me a lot of time.
The last part of this outdoor grill cart was to accessorize it. You’ll notice that I included a dowel that runs along the side, which can be used for paper towels and aluminum foil. We also added hooks for various grill flipping supplies. The last accessory is probably the most critical- the bottle opener.
Now when I’m going out to cook something on the grill, I load everything up that I need. I can fit the food, plates, silverware, grilling planks, grilling basket, cooler and more.
And now it’s time for the really fun stuff- a giveaway! Right now, we’re giving away all of the tools used to make this outdoor grill cart!
