This step by step woodworking project is about bbq table plans. This wood table is easy to build, even if you are a weekend woodworker. All you need to do is print my plans and then go to your local store for the building materials. Follow my instructions and tips, so you get the job done quickly and without no problems. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Build a bbq table
Build the frame for the bbq table from 1×4 lumber. Cut the slats at the dimensions shown in the diagram and secure them together with screws. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the 34 1/2″ long slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the perpendicular components. Add waterproof glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square.
Attach the legs to the two frames, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws through the frames into the legs. Align the edges flush and make sure the corners are right-angled.
Fit a piece of 1×4 lumber to the top frame. Make sure the corners are square. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the support and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the frame.
Fit 1×2 cleats to the bottom frame, as shown in the image. Use glue and 1 1/4″ screws into the frame.
Fit the 1×4 slats to the bottom frame. Make sure you make notches to the slats placed at both ends of the shelf. Place a piece of 3/8″ plywood between of the slats to create even gaps. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the slats into place tightly.
Assemble the tabletop from 2×6 lumber. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ pocket screws and add glue to the joints. Align the edges with attention and smooth the edges.
Lay the tabletop on a level surface and then center the frame of the table into place. Drill pocket holes through the tabletop frame and insert 1 1/4″ screws.
Fill the holes with wood putty and finish the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of stain or paint to enhance the look of the project in a professional manner. Make sure you select products designed for outdoor use.
This is a nice table for outdoor. This wood table is ideal next to your brick bbq, as it offers you room for preparing the meat and for spicing it up. If you like my project, don’t forget to SHARE it on Facebook and Pinterest.
