Step 1: What You Need

Materials:
-A grill in need of fixing
-2 wooden TV trays
-Spray Paint

Tools:
-drill
-oscillating multi-tool / saw
-hole-saw bits / regular bits / spade bit
-screwdriver
-clear ruler
-wood glue

Step 2: Remove and Salvge

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.

Step 6: Get Grillin!
