Introduction: BBQ Table

BBQ Table made from table top that was found in a skip, bbq had been left out for scrap man by a neighbour, legs were claimed from an old table.

Step 1: Marking the Bbq Hole

I've started by marking out hole required with the bbq lid. Also attached some wood underneath the table top for the legs to sit against.

Step 2: BBQ Hole

I've cut the hole out with a jig saw, far from a profestional cut. Then screwed 4 screws into the side to rest the bbq in the hole and keep it from touching the wood for obvious reasons.

Step 3: Jobs a Goodun

BBQ sits in nicely with a gap all the way round, winding the screws in or out let the bbq drop or be raised slightly.

Step 4: Still to Do

still need to sand the table for painting and try salvage a new lid or fix a better handle, I'm thinking of welding a spanner for a handle. Check back.

Did a similar build a couple of years ago, have a look at my instructable which shows one way of dealing with the heat. Although I wasn't trying to cook on mine, as I found the heat transfer through the bbq burnt all the wood it was supported by!
Looks damn good though

Great upcycling. Just watch your knees ... It might get hot under the table ?

Do you suppose a cable spool would work for this?

Yeah I don't see why not, another I thought was a long narrow grill down the middle of a picnic bench?

Could call a party with this a 'grill-due' instead of 'fondue.' lol Such fun!

Haha nicely done

This would be great for one of those deals where everyone at the part can cook their own meal.
