Simple easy cook / grill setup for an upcoming bushcraft meeting
« on: September 04, 2019, 12:16:13 AM »
For the upcoming Dutch Bushscraft weekend mid September, I wanted to make a small grill / cook setup where my friends and I can prepare our food on between and after the workshops that are given there.
The sink is an old one, quite thick material, not one of those flimsy thin ones from these days.
The old wash drying rack is from my mother in law, she bought a new one and I took the old one for future projects, like this one now.
I wanted to do it very low cost and with simple tools.
The result is better then I expected. The folding legs and removable pot hanging rack makes transport easy.

Here's the "making of" video:

Brilliant!  I like it.

Now you can say you have everything, including the kitchen sink.

Nice workmanship and very creative use of a sink.  That would make a pretty good full time bbq at my place.  I happen to have an old stainless steel milk barn sink stored away and will take a look at it for size and thickness.  Thanks for posting this.

I watched the video after posting the above.  Very neat that everything was made from, as you noted, on hand materials.  It was nice to see the young boys interest in working with you on this too.

That looks really good Dabberty!  Nice job on it.  That would come in handy for about any outdoor event.
