Trolley stand upcycled from old barbecue

Finding My Feet

Trolley stand upcycled from old barbecue

My idea was to make a trolley stand for drinks or plants out of an old barbecue.


We took all parts off the barbecue and recycled all parts.All parts were dropped off at a recycling depot.


We used Form ply F14 1200x595x17mm that cost S22.70 from Bunnings.


The Form ply was a perfect for the top of the trolley and screws were used at each end of the trolley.


With perfect length screws from Bunnings the project was completed.


We like the finished trolley and it was easy to move around with the wheels. 



We used Form F14 1200x595x17mm that cost $22.70 from four screws 8G x30mm  each end from Bunnings




We used battery drill, jigsaw and screw driver bits, tape measure, pencil, and sand paper to remove sharp edges.

Creating a trolley stand from an old barbecue is a brilliant idea, and it's impressive how you recycled all the parts, reducing waste and giving the barbecue a new purpose. The finished trolley stand looks fantastic, and I'm sure it's super-easy to move around the garden, providing versatility and convenience. Overall, it's a remarkable transformation and a practical addition to your outdoor space.


How has the trolley stand improved the functionality of your garden or patio area, and have you had a chance to wheel it out when entertaining?


Great job!
