An Outdoor Barbeque Island That Looks Like Wooden Furniturecomments (5) April 13th, 2010 in Project Gallery
This was an exciting project because I wanted to build a permanent outdoor grill area, but wanted it up on legs to look like the teak furniture we have on our patio. I also wanted it to have cedar siding and some aluminum trim, to match the modern guest house it sits next to.
I framed it in 4x4's to make it ultra-rigid, since I didn't want the tile countertop to crack. Building the legs was the trickiest part, since the "island" spans a valley in the concrete patio. Every leg needed to be a different length, with a different compound-mitre on the bottom.
The edging for the tile countertop is aluminum angle stock which I notched and bent around the perimeter of the countertop, creating a form to contain the tile work.
