outdoor rolling console



On the patio, deck or backyard this rolling console makes a very useful addition for outdoor entertaining. It has three large open shelves for food, drinks and extra storage. The open slat shelving is designed to let rain and moisture flow in between the boards making your rolling console outdoor friendly. In addition I used cedar wood for the shelf surfaces and sealed the entire console with exterior grade clear polyurethane.

This rolling console is counter height and completely portable on casters so you can use it anywhere.

  • Looks great. I'm going to give it a try over the winter, but I'll use more affordable pine, and I'll need to cut it down to fit where I need it.
