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.
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.

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.
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.
Thanks for sharing this project. Super interesting. Just wondering what products the frame and top are. Is it a rackit system? And is the bbq just sitting on top or do you have it cut in. Just wondering about heat and the counter top. Thanks sean
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's magnificent to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about the outdoor kitchen cabinets.
Let me tag @TerryD to make them aware of your kind words and questions. I believe they used a form of Rackit system although I'm not aware which one they exactly used. If you're building something similar, please make sure to post an update. I'm sure our members would be keen to see your version of the outdoor kitchen bbq.
If you have any other questions about this project, please let us know.
The setup works really well. The one on the left is a workshop table with a metal workshop cabinet underneath with a sink cutout and plumbed in.
the one on the right is a workshop cabinet that has a timber top. The Weber BBQ Is sitting on top and the heat is not a problem. I sealed both tops with clear lacquer to protect them from staining etc.
If you need any more information or photos, please let me know.
