Easy Upgrades for the Weekend DIYer
Weekend of June 25th: Rolling Grill Station
Get ready for Independence Day barbecuing! Tony DiGangi of Wellesley, Mass., will be out on the deck, barbecuing steak and burgers for a crowd. "We entertain a lot, and our grill is the social hub," he says. So when This Old House asked readers to design their own Home Center Project, Tony let his inner grill master do the thinking.
He came up with a great idea for a place to store his cooking tools and set his platters of food—a cart assembled from wood planters and metal-wrapped plywood—and won the right to build his creation with TOH general contractor Tom Silva. With a few tweaks—hooks, hinges, and wheels—Tom turned Tony's idea into barbecue brilliance. See How to Build a Grilling Station to start building yours.
