Project Information

My buddy wanted a grilling station for his charcoal grill. i saw this one on one of my woodworking magazines and went with it. We worked on it together and it came out really nice. I concrete countertop was a challenge for a couple of rookies but it came out great. Now when i go to make mine i won't have any problems. It is made out of cedar.

Something like this has been on my radar for a while. After all these years Ii still can't bring myself to cook on a gas grill. :)

There thing that has always concerned me is the heat from the grill (can easily hit 600 degrees) would ignite the wood. What's the clearance between the kettle and the wood?

Hey, that looks familiar! Nice work, I debated going concrete vs the wood top, but was intimidated by the concrete option. I figured I would mess it up and get a choppy finish that I wouldn't be able to smooth out (and couldn't just sand down like wood). Looks like you nailed it. Solid design and plans I have to say.

Really well done. I also would be intimidated by the thought of a poor finish on the concrete. But I like the construction and appearance of the finish.

yea katz I wasn't going to do wood, but I got talked out of it. I like how yours turned out.. very nice.

jerky lips.. I made mine so there is about 3/4" from the concrete and about 3" from the wood. Havent had a problem yet and the grill gets used about 5 times a week.
