I set out to build a nice, sturdy table for my new Vision Kamado grill that I purchased from Home Depot. I wanted something a little nicer that the metal stand that came in the box. I used some locally sourced Cypress for the build due to its good looks and natural weather resistance. The tools I used for the build were my circular saw, jig saw, hand sander, 16 and 18 gauge nails with compressor. All of which are Ryobi tools. The biggest challenge with the build was to make sure that the table was sturdy enough to support the weight on the 220lb kamado grill without weakening over time due to exposure to the Florida heat and humidity. In order to help with the weather resistance, I finished the table with a deck sealant called OneTime wood protector. The project took several weeks to complete as my time was consumed by my 10 month old son, Bryce, who’s my first. I ultimately spent about 25 hours on construction and 26 hours on sanding and finishing. All edges have been rounded over by hand to make sure the table is safe and splinter free for Bryce, as I spend a lot of time with him in the back yard cooking up meals. I must say, I’m happy with the end result, even if it took a little longer than my wife may have liked! I’ve gotten several compliments from neighbors who would stop by my garage in the evenings to see what in the world I was building. I’m happy to be part of the DIY community and hopefully I can inspire some of them to try projects of their own.
