Introduction: BBQ Tool Rack and Bottle Cap Opener Station

About: Owner of Tiger Island Group, LLC which includes Tiger Island Contractors, Tiger Island Tiny Homes, and Tiger Island Storage.

This project is for my father. He likes to BBQ for the family and have a few Coronas. I felt this would be a great thing for him to have on the wall by his pit. He doesn't drink Abita beer much but I thought having a local brewry bottle opener would be nice.

Step 1: Cuts

First I measured and made all of the necessary cuts.

4 - 1" x 6" x 2'

1 - 1" x 4" x 2'

2 - 1" x 4" x 4-1/4"

2 - 1" x 4" x 5"

3 - 1" x 1-1/2" x 2'

Step 2: Frame Up

Next I used the 1" x 1-1/2" x 2' pieces to frame the 5 boards for the face.

I used 2" nails used at an angle since my nails were too long. Worked every time.

The 4" board went in the middle to designate the bottle cap opener area.

I test fit the cap opener to see how it would look.

Step 3: Cap Drop & Tool Hangers

Next I added the cap drop.

I used the 4 small cuts from the 1" x 4" x 4' board.

Nailed these together and then nailed from the back side of the face boards.

I screwed the Abita bottle cap opener to make sure it looked like I wanted. It does.

Next I drilled the holes for the tool hangers. I am using cabinet nobs for the hangers.

Step 4: Sanding & Stain

Next I sanded the entire front area and the corners to prepare for staining.

Once the sanding was done, I did the stain. I used Dark Bark stain.

After staining, I added all of the parts.
