How to: Build an Outdoor Bar Cart

This summer, move beyond cans and a cooler of ice, and create a sturdy, portable bar cart for your outdoor cocktail parties and grill-filled get-togethers. This option is made from cedar dimensional lumber, so it can not only stand up to the elements, but it's a great project for those without a table saw and a bunch of fancy woodworking tools.    Mark Powers from This Old House designed this project using easy-to-find materials from your local home center, using rich cedar and brass hardware for a classic, outdoor-friendly design. If your not into outdoor cocktails, this two-tiered cart would work great for outdoor dining, as a rollable grill cart, or even a portable potting bench.

Not a bad looking cart I guess. Seems to me it would be most practical in an upper level apartment building unit. Ya know, out on the back porch or some place where there is limited space. If you have a house and you're gonna do it yourself, build a real bar.

That's my opinion anyway!
