I started with the VWB mod for adapting the
Weber worktable to the WSM. Upon finishing this project, a
bigger, better idea cam along.
Why not a caddy for the WSM? About 2 feet by 4 feet, the WSM
sits on the caddy, raised about a foot - that's good for me. A
cabinet is built in the remaining 2'x2' space on the right.
This will form a natural wind brake for the Weber, provide
storage for all the BBQ tools short of perishables, and it gets
it off the ground so I don't have to crawl around.
Everything is stored in there, from sterno coal lighters,
gloves, tin foil, even paper towels. I'd even store the knives
there if I could do the trimming out there.
The trick about this though, is that I really don't have the
kind of tools for doing this - I had to consider how each piece
would fit together to compensate for non precision cuts and
still allow drawer slides to roll without binding. No easy
This cabinet was made using only hand tools - a skill saw,
jig saw, hand saw, and a drill. It's a little rickety, but
the slides work, and the door closes. A coat of paint made its
appearance more palatable to the wife, and a custom made vinyl
cover and you're done.
