I am in the planing stage on putting in an out door kitchen. I am going to make a work table with a sink in it. I want it to look like a wood shop work bench not like kitchen cabinets. Could some of you give me some hints on getting started?

Well Gary first you get some boards. Then get your saw out and cut the boards to length then nail them together. Simple as that. Haaa Haaa
I would just build a workshop table then cut the hole for the sink. Do you want doors and sides. Gona be hard to not look like kitchen cabinets if it is closed in.

I have Been dreaming of an outdoor kitchen as well and my plans are influenced by our climate and the exposure to the weather. I personally want no maintenance for years so I’m avoiding wood but you could use a pressure treated frame if you choose or a pine pole look would be nice as well but have inherit maintenance.

I’ve done a number of concrete slabs for countertops and am amazed how inexpensive and durable they are. I use 5000 psi concrete and you can pour in a mold and move it to the location or with a little more planning pour in place. As to the sink I wouldn’t try to tie it into the house plumbing on either the waste or supply side. I would consider a temporary hose connection behind on the back and run the drain into a pail or the yard as I’m sure you won’t run more than a couple gallons per week through. In our jurisdiction this would relieve your obligation for permits and lots of troubles

Good luck and post some pictures

Thanks for your input on this outdoor kitchen Larry. I do have a place for water and sewage to go. This is why I am trying to make me a sink and work bench to work off of. I also am going to put on a Aluminum top on it. I am trying to make this table rustic looking.
