Yes it has plastic spacer legs on each corner raising it about 25mm of the bench.

Re: Outdoor kitchen

Well done this looks great @darryl7 !

 

I’m about to build an outdoor kitchen although a bit smaller.

 

Did you build this on top of the decking or build the kitchen first and the decking around it?

 

I already have the decking in place and am wondering whether I can build straight on top, or I’ll need to recut the decking and fix the kitchen framing to the concrete slab underneath.

Cheers, Justin

Re: Outdoor kitchen

Thanks for the compliment Justin. Yes i biult the kitchen straight down on top of the deck. There are four 250mm long bugle head screws spaced out in the bottom of the cabinets into the decking to hold them from moving around as i had no where to fix them through the back of the cabinets.

Re: Outdoor kitchen

Thanks @MitchellMc 

I’m trying to decide on what material I’ll use for the external cladding and cabinetry. Can I use marine grade ply and then paint this? Would I still need to clad with a blue board first? Thanks.

@JustinS,

 

You can use marine grade ply and then paint it for the cabinetry. I might need more details on what you intend to clad with blue board to offer an answer on whether it is required,

Re: Outdoor kitchen

I built my cabinets from formply, its usually used to hold wet concrete so its strong and doesnt mind getting wet. I did have to scuff up the surface a bit to get the paint to stick to it.
