BBQ Table Plans
Grilling and Serving.
You Can Build This Outdoor Serving Table!
These BBQ table plans are one of the 15 plans included on the "Pocket Hole Project Plans CD." This table base is made from 2x4 Western Red Cedar, and the top is made from 1" thick cedar, so it is suitable for outdoor use. It could also be made from pine, but the wood would need to be finished to make it weather resistant.
The table top measures a little more than 20" deep and 45" wide. This outdoor serving table is set at counter top height, but if you needed it a little higher, you could make the legs a little longer.
The table legs are tapered in the plan, but could be built more easily without the tapers.

The Kreg CD With These BBQ Table Plans is Available from Amazon.
This CD has 15 pocket hole woodworking plans, one of which is these outdoor serving table plans. The others include a chair, a simple wall shelf, a desk, a workbench and more tables. Many of these plans would be suitable for the beginner woodworker!
Woodworking HAND Tools Needed to Build These Serving Table Plans.
This Kreg jig table plan requires just a few basic hand tools:
- Kreg jig;
- woodworking clamps;
- tape measure; and
The Woodworking Power Tools Needed.
If you build these BBQ table plans exactly as written, you will need the following woodworking POWER tools:
- circular saw (or table saw);
- router: and
If you simplify this plan, which would not be difficult to do, you can get by with just the saw and the drill!
For finishing, an electric sander would be much easier than hand sanding, but it is not absolutely necessary.
Always make sure you wear your safety glasses when using your saws or drills.
Here is a List of the Materials for This Kreg Jig Plan.
Materials Needed To Build Kreg Patio Table:
The "Bill of Materials" included in this plan is not a shopping list - i.e. it does not tell you what you need to buy or have in stock to build it. It just gives you the dimensions of each piece.
And if you build this plan to include the poly cutting board, and the glass trivet, you have to plane down or resaw some of the wood thicknesses to fit the plan.
SO, we cannot give you a Materials List, like we usually do. . . .
What we do know is that if you are planning to use this table outdoors, you will need to use the Kreg BlueKote screws, because those are weather resistant. You will need both the 1 1/2" coarse and the 2 1/5" coarse screws.
may not be able to find the weather resistant, Kreg BlueKote screws at your local hardware or big box
store. By clicking on the photo of the screws, you can buy them
directly from the Kreg Tool Company.
The Approximate Costs to Build This Kreg Patio Table?
Normally we give you some idea of the costs. For these BBQ table plans, we are unable to do that.
We do know, that with the plan including a top AND two shelves, you have a lot of surface. And that would use a lot of wood.
The small patio table, also included on the Kreg Pocket Hole Plans CD, would cost about $45, so a rough estimate for this one would be at least 4 times that amount.
our Hints, Tips and Recommendations!
Without a planer or a router, it would be difficult to build these BBQ table plans as designed. But, if you have those, this would be a great plan for you.
However, the basic approach to creating this outdoor serving table is good, and can be used very easily for a simpler table with shelves underneath. By not tapering the legs, and not including the cutting board and glass trivet, it would be some very straightforward building.
For making the table top and the shelves, you will be doing some edge joining, so a Kreg Face Clamp would be very helpful. You will also want to have a 1/4" spacing jig (easy to make yourself) to align the table top and shelf pieces more easily.
The Kreg Right Angle Clamp would help make the base go together more easily. It would also make attaching the shelves to the legs go smoother. The plan shows you how to use spacing jigs to get the shelves attached in the right position.
