Make a DIY Grilling Caddy Project Guide
Time Required: Under 2 hours
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.
Tools & Materials
- 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
- 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.
