Gearing up for summer? I know I am and last summer we desperately needed some additional counter space outdoors for serving food and drinks so I built this outdoor rolling console.
Not only does it have tons of counter and shelf space but it's totally portable! That means I can move it anywhere with ease, so convenient.
This console appeared over at Ryobi Nation and today I have the plans here for you.
The complete plans including materials and cut lists are down below.
How to build an outdoor rolling console:
Please follow all safety precautions when using power tools.
2 – 1x6x8 cedar 11 – 1x6 cedar @ 23” (top slats)
6 – 1x4x8 cedar 28 – 1x4 cedar @ 18 ½” (shelf slats)
2 – 2x3x8 fir studs 4 – 2x3 @ 29 ¼” (legs)
3 – 2x2x8 pine boards 6 – 2x2 @ 58 ½” (frame front/back)
3 – 2x2x6 pine boards 6 - 2x2 @ 16 ½” (frame sides)
4 – 5” casters (at least 2 with brakes)
1 ¼” pocket hole screws
2 ½” pocket hole screws
2” finish nails
Step 1: Frame short sides. Attach short frame sides to legs using pocket holes. Use glue and 2 ½” pocket hole screws. Keep pocket holes to interior or underside.
Step 2: Frame front/back. Attach long frame front and back pieces to legs using pocket holes. Use glue and 2 ½” pocket hole screws. Keep pocket holes to interior or underside.
Step 3: Top slats. Attach top slats to frame. Glue and attach using 2” finish nails. Keep ¾” overhang at front, back and sides.
Step 4: Middle shelf. Attach shelf slats to frame. Keep slat flush to underside of 2x2 and attach using 1 ¼” pocket hole screws.
Step 5: Bottom shelf. Same as Step 4. Attach shelf slats to frame. Keep slat flush to underside of 2x2 and attach using 1 ¼” pocket hole screws.
Step 6: Casters. Attach 5” casters to bottom four corners using 1 ½” wood screws to fit casters. Use at least 2 casters with brakes on opposing corners.
Sand well. Seal with exterior grade polyurethane at least 2 coats.
