Update: We now have a fully functioning kitchen counter set up in the middle of the woods. No water on the piece of land yet so there’s a handy foot pump for hand and dish washing (thanks to the boy scout troop who posted a video of their portable hand washing station to youtube.)
I’ve spent the past month building the sink counter for the outdoor kitchen. The frame for the counter is made from recycled wood (it used to be part of my kids’ bunk bed). The posts are hickory, acquired from a friend. In this photo, Stokely helps me make copper plates to beautify the connecting points. There is crazy joinery in this thing; almost entirely hand-sawn and chiseled, with a little bit of sawzall action.
Total cost thus far: $5 for the sink from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. We will likely be buying a piece of plywood soon though with plans to eventually add a concrete top.
