This year I challenged myself to make a few simple projects. Things that you can pop out in less than an evening without a ton of effort. Since January I’ve made a few of these 10 Minute DIYs and these simple projects are quickly becoming my favourites. This month we challenged ourselves to make a quick outdoor project, and when I was drawing a blank…. zero ideas… my husband said, “You could make a BBQ Tool Holder in less than 10 Minutes”. My response was “Ummm… no I can’t”, which sparked some kind of male challenge instinct in my husband. Ten minutes later (including time for photos!) we had a utensil holder, lol.

We used scrap wood for this project, but if you don’t have any, a 1×6 board (2 ft long) could easily be cut up into strips for this holder.

Materials: 

Scrap wood (1x1s and a 2ft 2x1s)
1.5″ Screws
Wood stain

Tools: 

Table Saw
Mitre Saw
Drill

Start by cutting your boards to length.
Arm lengths (1×1 board): 2.5″, 3″, & 4″
[The 3″ length is based on the width of your railing – measure your railing]
Base (1 x2 board): 24″ long

Then cut any widths that need to be adjusted on the table saw.

We did all of the attachments with screws. Because it’s a thin wood slice, you will want to make a pilot hole before putting your screws in place. Use your drill to make a small hole where the boards will attach.

We also used wood glue to make sure the connections were strong.

Once you have one arm built, do the same for the second arm.

When both arms are built, attach them a couple of inches from each end of the 1×2 board. Finally, you want to add a few screws to the front of the board, sticking out so that your BBQ utensils can hang on them.

Just to prove it, I timed the whole thing! Just under 11 minutes! I think that’s pretty good considering I made him pause to take photos a few times, lol.

We stained the piece with our favourite Ebony stain from Minwax, and hung it on the deck! Just to make sure it works, I make my husband BBQ every couple of days too ;)
