I didn't use plans, just kind of built it from what I had seen of pictures of many other such carts on NakedWhiz.com. I built mine out of cedar and used stainless steel deck screws and carriage bolts. The wheels are pneumatic to help with leveling - and solid wheels have a tendency to develop flat spots. I have since changed the tile to a concrete paving stone where the egg sits, and put some aluminum flashing over the edge in front of the vent to facilitate removing spilled ash. Also note the 30 gallon Rubbermaid bucket - I use that for waterproof storage of lump charcoal and a metal feed scoop for scooping the charcoal out.

I use plenty of hooks for hanging the grill as well as other accessories, and don't forget to mount a bottle opener.

There are some plans and other info here on NakedWhiz.com.

Beautiful grill cart. I have a grill whose cart is at the end of its life but the grill is still in fine shape. I may have to build a similar cart.

One question..........are the vise-grips used in getting the cat on or off the grill?

Actually, it's not a ViseGrip, it's the Grill Grabber thing. The cat doesn't respond to that, but a simple spatula works fine for enforcing compliance.
