Barbecue (BBQ) Cart

Duration: 25:24

It’s hard to beat cooking outside. It’s already fun, so make it easy and convenient by building this great BBQ Cart. It’s made from naturally weather resistant cedar, looks great, and will last a lifetime. The handle is a nice touch, made from copper pipe that really accents the cedar. You’ll learn how to cut tapers on the legs, make wooden wheels on the band saw, and get the slats spaced so every space is exactly the same. This simple to make project will look great next to your grill, and also makes a great gift.

A cut list for this project is included for Premium Members.

      Hi, michaelmicksr! 3/4″ stock, 5″ diameter. The lay out and cutting is shown at about minute 22 of the video.


    Hi, I was wondering what finish you use on the cart.

      I made this cart about a year ago. I let the pressure treated wood “age” outdoors for about 6 months. I then finished it with a marine varnish (Sikkens).

      Hello. Western Red Cedar would be a great choice. White oak is also good for outdoor projects.

      Cut the handle to length after dry-assembling the upper frame. While it’s dry fit you can measure from bottom to bottom on the handle holes, and cut the handle about 1/16” less than this measurement.
