Easily transport your grilling accessories from the kitchen to your outdoor grill
Build your own DIY toolbox of sorts specially designed to carry all of your grilling accessories. This guide will walk you through the process of turning a common board and dowel into a grilling accessory caddy.
Mark the common boards using these measurements.
For the 1 x 8-inch x 8-foot board:
• 2 end pieces: 10 inches
• 1 bottom piece: 18 inches
For the 1 x 4-inch x 8-foot board:
• Cut along the marks you have made using the circular saw.
• Once cut, take both 10-inch ends and measure 5 ½ inches down the 10-inch side and make a mark.
• From that mark, measure 3 inches towards the center.
• Draw a line connecting the two points.
• Repeat measure on opposite side.
• Cut along your lines to create the “house shaped ends.”
• Cut the dowel down to 18 ½ inches in length.
TIP: Smooth out edges with sanding block
• Drill a hole 1 inch down the center of each side board.
• Do not punch all the way through the boards, only go ¼-inch deep.
Paint or stain the box and allow to completely dry.
• Take your 8 x 18-inch piece and lay it flat.
• Attach your two “house” ends using the brad nailer to the outside of the 18-inch section.
• Insert the dowel into the drilled pockets on both sides, then secure with nails.
• Lay the box on its side and attach one 19 ½-inch piece.
• Repeat on other side.
• Place the 18-inch insert in the box standing on its long end, leaving enough width for storage.
• A 2 ¼-inch gap is recommended.
• Once in position, secure by nailing through each side.
Center the bottle opener on the preferred end and attach using the screws provided with the hardware.
