Making progress on the BBQ prep island 

It’s starting to come together. The sides and back are tongue and groove pine slats. The base frame hidden behind the slats is 1/2 plywood. The theory being the whole thing will be lighter than the first one I made…so far it’s on par to be just as heavy. 

The rails and stiles are cheap 1x pine. It’s hard to tell, but the center area is intended to be open to the air, with adjustable shelves. This will let me get to my induction burner, and the margarita machine easily. The side spaces will have cupboard doors, and a drawer above them. 

I will have to stop at this point to prepare for our new deck installation in about 10 days. But a decent chunk of the work is done.
