I built this for my dad last summer, to his specifications. It’s made from 1/2” marine grade ply, with dado and butt joints. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but the cabinet is L-shaped and wraps around two sides of the column. The left section is deep enough to hold a spare roll of paper towels behind the primary. The dowel drops through a hole in the shelf above into a hole drilled halfway through the shelf below. The long tools hang from the hooks in the compartment at the upper right. Finish is exterior oil-base paint.

Yeah, great useful cabinet… but then also look what it is attached to and then what that covers… nice set up!

Excellent idea! I have my grill “hardwired” into the gas of my home so I end up using it all the time. We cook on it rain/snow or shine. There have been several times when I have had to go back inside to get a utensil or odd gadget. This would solve the problem. And I have a post near the grill where something like this would fit perfectly.

Well done and very creative!
