Step 1: Gather the Materials
Materials you will need:
1 small tin
1 coat hanger
a piece of sandpaper
small scraps of wood
Step 2: Cut the Coat Hangers
The coat hangers will make the grate over the grill. First, sand ALL the paint off the coat hangers with sand paper. This is very important. Then measure and cut the coat hangers so that when you put them in the tin, the ends stick out.
Step 3: Drill the Holes in the Tin
Take your tin and mark where you want your metal grate to go. Then drill holes about the size of the coat hanger.
Step 4: Put the Grate On
Put the coat hanger bars into the holes you just drilled. For help, look at the picture.
Step 5: Finish Up
If the bars slide around, you can wedge them in place with pieces of wire (optional). You want to leave room so you can put the wood scraps in. Once the wood is in, your done. Go try your new grill!
