I started to clean my gas grill yesterday & realized it was worn out...it already out lived two burner replacements. I MADE A LIST EARLY THIS MORNING TO GET TWO THINGS DONE TODAY & NOT GET SIDETRACKED.  :D   I decided to use the moble cart frame & put a much needed work table on top. I had a lot of short pieces of PT 2x6's so this will be my top. I adjusted the size to the amount of wood I had so I ended up with a table top of 75"L x 32"W. I do a lot of work between my house & garage & I hate setting up saw horses every time I want to do something. The frame bolts had plastic inserts with cheap screws. I replaced them with carriage bolts to make it more stable.  I also finished painting my trailer wheels. I succeeded in getting these two things DONE.

Thanks to all the list makers out there for your inspiration.  :wave:

Should have left the side burner on there. Then you could warm lunch or keep the coffee hot! Looks good!

I actually thought about doing that as a joke but forgot about it then it got too dark for a pic.  :thumbs:

Looks good. that'll be handy to have around. You could drill a big hole, or

two, and insert a big umbrella in it for those hot sunny, or wet days.

I like your idea for I had done something similar. I removed the worn out burners and inserted a piece of plywood to serve as a table for one of those portable grills which for me worked out good.

Nice work table ..  :thumbs:

 

I've got a set of four heavy casters out in the garage and was also thinking of making a heavy metal rolling frame work table for them  . I've got a work bench but sometimes it be nice to move a work table to your work project .

 

 A few years back I used a small gas grill frame for my ( supposedly portable but heavy) 120 volt SP-135 Lincoln welder . I welded a metal top to the frame and a bracket on the rear to hang my welding clamps on .

It makes it nice nice rolling the welder around the garage or out to a project in the driveway .

It was on my list to read this.  Glad I finally did.  I like the idea and it looks really good!  Now I'm looking at our grill a little differently.

It''d be cool to add a small vice to it, might be pretty handy to have.

Good Repurposing There!  There is a BBQ sitting off to the side for a simular purpose. I'm planning to mount my Compound Miter Saw on it.  By Droping the saw down in the middle I should be able to use the higher ends as infeed and outfeed tables?
