    Custom Weber Kettle Cart

    Pics from last weekend and today:




    I was able to make good progress today. About 5 hours later:





    Yes, it is high. About 40" to the top.

    My main question to anyone who may have experience. Will the two handles be sufficient to support the kettle? I have a couple of options available to help support. Conduit clamps and some roofing strap pieces. But I would prefer to just use the handles.

    Right now, about $235 in lumber and hardware. And about 15 hours in time.

    I have seen other carts using only the handles for support. Great looking cart

    My Brothers cart lasted over 10 yrs just using the handles.
    Nice job!

    Almost done. Just a few things left to do. Still contemplating how best to secure the kettle other than the handles. I did fire it up yesterday to season it.

    Now you need a place to put your lid so it dont put black rings on your cart, or get rim rash etc.

    Looks like you did an outstanding job, wish I had the skills to make one as I could put both on it. The cart came out very nice

    Thank you. I am aiming to have it completed this weekend other than the staining.

    I have found that the lid will hang on the back corner of the cart with no issues, but I am looking into alternatives.

    Nah, that cart was a nice first try, but it is way too flimsy. As a favor, I'll take it off your hands so you can build a sturdy one. Of course, I'll wait until you stain it first, just to give you some practice.

    Seriously though, very nice job, and it is super sturdy looking. Several of our larger members could dance on top of that thing at once and it wouldn't even show any signs of strain.
