This is my first project post. Nothing special, but cheap and works for holding meat before it gets heated for consumption, which is more important. Top is made from pallet wood, the heat treated kind. The base structure is just dimensional 2×4 studs from home depot. I notched them to add some added strength and countersunk my screws. The apron is put together with pocket holes.

I did this project to fill a gap in my summer grilling setup after I moved. Here is a plan I wrote up before cutting.

Not all woodworking has to be fine-woodworking. This looks great, and it’s functional – that’s all that matters! Great use of pallet wood! Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Nice. Functional and inexpensive. Pallets are a great free wood source :)

Looks great! Just don’t put food directly on the top. You don’t know where the pallet has been…

Good job. That is the way I draw up my plans. Simple graph paper. I haven’t figured out how to use sketchup yet.
