My friend, neighbor, professor, author David (pictured) needed a large rolling grill table to support his frequent efforts at great grilling.  He showed me plans for one from This Old House magazine so we got the shopping list together and headed off to Big Blue for supplies.  A couple of days later with  luck and forced design changes the final product came to be.   You can get the plans at:  http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/how-to/intro/0,,20691643,00.html

It is a straightforward project but the plans leave a lot to the imagination and calculator. Pay attention to keeping everything level and square.  We are going through Beta testing now to see what may need changing and strengthening.

Estimated Cost

About $100.  Wheels alone were $20 and cedar was $50 so it adds up quickly.

Length of Time

2 days  (12 hours)

Modifications

The table is a little high for me to pull around so I suggest another handle just a little lower.

Lumber Used

100% cedar

Finishing Technique

Probably just natural stain.
