Outdoor cabinet with concrete countertop

Alex requested a custom cabinet for his outdoor balcony. He needed a working surface that would take some heat from a tabletop stove he has. The unit had to be somewhat weatherproof. He also asked for casters so that he could move the unit away from the wall plug if needed. So this is what I came up with!

For the countertop, I suggested concrete. I hadn’t made one before so this was my guinea pig project, but it turned out okay.

The end result was nice (“too nice to put outside,” he said). I believe it will last for a long time.
