Judging from the fleets of gas grills parked outside almost every big box home improvement store for the last five or six years one could assume that there’s been a bit of an uptick in outdoor cooking. While barbeque tends to take center stage in this ritual, there’s almost no thought given to basic kitchen amenities outside of the more elaborate setups. If you do a fair amount of your cooking outside, when the weather’s nice, and you’d like access to a sink, gas burner, cutting surface and storage space, check out this handsome DIY outdoor kitchen from London-based designer Nina Tolstrup. Step-by-step PDF instructions are available on her site. [via likecool]

The outdoor kitchen comprises of gas cooking hob, a bucket sink, a chopping
board and storage for crockery, utensils and a few food ingredients. Water is
connected from the garden hose and waste water is collected in a watering can
placed beneath the sink, so grey water can be reused.
