Outdoor kitchen using workshop cabinets

We saw these great workshop cabinets and benches in Bunnings and thought we could use these to create an outdoor kitchen.  

 

We toyed with the idea of getting cabinets built in and decided the cost was going to be prohibitive and also some exposure to weather would’ve been an issue.  


The result is great using these workshop items from Bunnings, we have places to store all that we need for an outdoor kitchen.  We use it heaps.

Re: Outdoor Kichen using workshop cabinets

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @TerryD. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your project.

 

What an innovative approach to a difficult situation! Well done for thinking outside the box and achieving a wonderful result. I'd be interested to hear about how you installed the sink in the workbench. Would you mind showing us a picture from underneath? 

 

Thanks for sharing once again, and we very much look forward to your next project.

Re: Outdoor kitchen using workshop cabinets

Hi @zeggie

i bought a sink and tap from sink warehouse and got a plumber to install for me. I cut the hole out for the sink with a jigsaw cutting through the timber top and metal cabinet.

Cheers

Hi Mitchell

i bought a sink and tap then cut out the timber top and metal cabinet for the sink with a jigsaw. I got a plumber to connect the waste and hot and cold water.

Cheers

Re: Outdoor Kichen using workshop cabinets

Hello @TerryD

 

Thank you for sharing that detail of your outdoor BBQ build. Let me tag @zeggie to make sure they see your answer. I was wondering myself how you managed to install the sink over the steel cabinet. 

 

Again, thank you for showing us that installation technique.
