Remove any excess junk hanging off of the grills arms, and salvage the screws and bolts. We'll need to embed them into the wooden tray.

Step 3: Mark it

Mark where the tray will connect to the grill, and where the slots for the utensils will be.

Step 4: Drill it

Use the spade bit to make the holes marked by the spray paint.
Next, drill out the slots that are going to hold the utensils.

Step 5: Connect the pieces.

File the top of the socket flat, so it fits nicely into the tray.
Use a little wood glue, and insert the socket.
Set the tray into the holes of the grill arms at all points, and bolt it to the Grill.
