BUILDING THE STAND:
Sides: 3/4″ Swedish plywood. Cutouts were removed to reduce weight.
Hinges: Residential door hinges with removable pins. The original pins were replaced on 2 sets with large framing nails for easier assembly.
Fold Out Shelves: Cutouts were reused and mounted with dowel pins as hidden hinges. Fold-out supports added.
Umbrella Stand: Scrap plywood with a 1’1/2″ pipe clamp. The top bracket of this camp kitchen is removable and attaches with small bolts and hidden crown nuts.
Assemble one short and one long side together and leave them that way. Store them folded flat and secure the removable pins in the box for safekeeping.
You can mark the pieces for easy assembly like the top/front.
COLLAPSED & EXPANDED: Here are the finished photos of the camp kitchen Chuck box collapsed for storage and expanded ready for use.
Remember, measure carefully and prefit everything before assembly.
MEASURED DRAWINGS: Here’s the measured drawing Portable Camp Kitchen Drawings. You can alter any and all dimensions to suite your own taste. The measurements shown on this drawing are estimates and may differ slightly from the finished projects. I did not include all of the detail for the fold out shelves and support legs so I’m sure you can come up with your own measurements.
