Create a hanging shelf for all your grilling essentials
What You Need
Using the measuring tape, measure and mark your cuts on the boards according to the cut diagram.
• Two 26-inch sections from the 2- x 4-inch whitewood stud
• Three 12-inch sections from the 1- x 6-inch common board
Use a circular saw to make the straight cuts on the boards.
Tip: For accurate cuts, use a carpenter’s square with the circular saw. Use a sanding block to smooth any rough edges once finished.
Stain or paint boards prior to assembly, if desired.
• Using 1-inch spade bit, drill holes in one end of each 26-inch side piece.
• Drill holes centered and 1-¾-inches from the end.
• Lay out the shelf pieces on a flat surface, making sure the large holes in the 2- x 4-inch boards are on the top.
• Arrange the pieces into their final layout and place the 2- x 4-inch boards on end with the shelves in between.
• The bottom shelf should be flush with the bottom of the side boards, and the remaining two shelves should be spaced 10 inches apart.
• Use clamps to apply light pressure and hold the shelf together. Make sure all the shelves are also flush with the back of the sides pieces.
• Double-check the shelf spacing with your tape measure and lightly tap on any shelves that need adjustments.
• With the clamps holding the shelf together, use the 1/8-inch drill bit to pre-drill two holes (four per shelf) for screws on each side through the sides and into the shelves.
• Drive in screws to secure the shelf into place.
• Run rope through each hole.
• Tie knots on outside of each side.
Screw hooks into the underside of the bottom shelf. Make sure they are evenly spaced.
