SPECS

Timeframe: 18-20 Apr 2021

Wood Used: Reclaimed Pine, reclaimed (salvaged from somewhere) pine table top

Galoot Index: 5 on a 10 point scale. Material cut by machine (table saw and RAS). Smoothed and jointed w/ hand planes of all kinds. Dowels by M-F brace, smoothed with #9 mitre plane.

Cost: $0 for wood, it was all salvage material. new spray paint (of course). Attached a basket for S&P that came from Menards, $8 I think.

NARRATIVE

Hello everyone!

Did a short blog series on the building of this grill station that I won’t repeat in depth here. Suffice to say Blackstone griddles have a ton of accessories that need storage space. Space also at a premium when food is coming on and off the griddle. So I needed a small table to work on and hold stuff when not cooking (that I’d put in a small tub, all on the back porch).

Using another shop table for construction technique inspiration, I came up with the project above. All made of loblolly pine, with the base painted per My Charming and Beautiful Wife’s suggestion.

The bottom shelf will get a clear coat of some kind yet, but not today as it’s snowing outside (!) I did enjoy the very quick build. And as always, thanks for looking.

The basket on the side looks like a nice addition, too! Way to corral the spices and sauces. Well done!

Glad you left the flat surfaces natural, they counter the painted base nicely.

Pottz, we love it. Things cook fast, and it’s very easy to use. No grill flareups. And all the mess of griddle cooking is kept outside.

Smallest is 17” and that’s enough to cook for two only. This one’s 22” and has two burner ‘zones’ which is clutch.

Thx for the comments! Yeah, lower shelf was a needed feature and truly had to stay natural, like the top. Basket was an accidental find while shopping for the lidded tub. And fits perfectly as a bonus.
