This DIY portable outdoor kitchen will make cooking outdoors even more fun. Although it's not cheap to make, it doesn't cost thousands of dollars like other outdoor kitchens do.
Instructables user molarin has the instructions for making this yourself, from constructing the solid base to making the sink and concrete countertop. That inset cutting board is pretty nifty too. All in all, this portable kitchen cost about $US600 ($833) — not bad for something that's versatile and will improve your outdoor space.
