Barbeque Grill Cart

We recently bought a new gas grill to replace our old cheapie one that rusted out.  It’s a small model that requires a tabletop or a stand. Unfortunately the Weber barbecue grill cart sold separately for this grill is $100. I knew I could make something nicer for half that price.

This barbecue grill cart is beg enough to hold two propane tanks on the lower shelf. I like to have two tanks in case one runs out in the middle of cooking a meal. I’ve included an elevated platform for utensils and plates and the whole unit is mobile, using the wheels from the old grill.


8 – 1x4x8 Cedar Boards

  • 15 pieces @ 18″ long
  • 11 pieces @ 15″ long
  • 2 pieces @ 48 1/2″ long
  • 2 pieces @ 36 1/4″ long
  • 4 pieces @ 13 1/2″ long
  • 2 pieces @ 1 1/2″ x 13 1/2″ long
  • 2 pieces @ 1 1/2″ x 12 3/4″ long

2 – 2x4x8 Cedar Boards

  • 2 pieces @ 34 3/4″ long
  • 2 pieces @ 27″ long

1 – 36″ length of 1 1/2″ dowel
2 – Wheels or castors from a old BBQ cart


After cutting most of the pieces to length, I drilled 1 1/2″ holes in one end of each of the upper table frame. These will hold the dowel handle. I clamped the two boards together and cut both holes at once to ensure they would line up properly.

I cut a curve on the end of each of these using my bandsaw. I assembled the top frame and the lower frame into simple boxes using pocket screws.

I curved the ends of the two feet. These, and the rear uprights are made from 2x4s. They get glued and screwed into the table frames. I used the wheels from the old cart and attached them using a threaded rod.

I glued the dowel handle in place and attached a frame to the upright for the utensil platform.

To protect everything, I covered all the surfaces with a transparent redwood deck stain and sealer, then screwed all the plans into place on the frames.
