Outdoor-Küche mit coaxis®-System-Profilen


Hi viewers!
Summer has finally arrived. And so, we want to enjoy a
very special bit of luxury. A home-made outdoor kitchen
is far from expensive. A job for our designer Helen, our all-rounder Marlott, my little contribution and Hami of course! The sad reality of barbecuing
in many gardens: burnt sausages,
wobbly three-legged barbecues. It simply isn’t fun! From today, these are problems of the past! From now on, we’re going to
prepare our food with style – in an open air setting. Outdoor kitchens are
right on trend, but few people can
really afford one. Today, we’re going to show you
how to build your own modular outdoor kitchen for
the garden. But what does an
outdoor kitchen need? What units should be included? An outdoor kitchen has to be
able to do everything that your indoor kitchen can. These are our materials. We’ll use these aluminium profiles
for the main frame. They’re weatherproof,
easy to clean and can be combined
in endless ways. alfer® offers a broad
range of pipes, profiles and accessories. We mainly use
the coaxis® system. Today, this particularly involves
these 35 mm profiles. All we need to do is cut
them to the right length. To do so, we’ll use a mitre saw
with an aluminium blade. If we didn’t have a mitre saw,
we could also simply use a normal circular saw.
Let’s get started! Once the profiles have been cut to size,
we’ll use them to build the frames for the
individual kitchen units. Shall we start with these? You take one and I’ll take one.
Yes. There’s a practical solution for
connecting the alfer® profiles. The connecting brackets supplied with
the profiles fit perfectly in this groove. Then, they simply have to be
secured at the right height. So… just tighten the bracket. Easy. These end caps are
placed on the ends. Ok, I’ll give it a go. Press down firmly once
and the end cap is in place. Hami’s looking for the
next one for us. We also attach a support profile
to each of the cross-pieces for the shelves. And what do we do with this? We slide that onto the
bracket here at the top with the support profile pointing forwards. Wonderful. What’s this part for? That makes the unit stable. And that’s the bit which will
later support our shelf, right? Exactly! The first front is now ready,
but there’s still lots to do. So that our kitchen units
remain flexible, we add castors to one side
of each of them. To do this, we use a thread cutter
to create a thread in the central channel of the post. We’ve already drilled a hole
through the end caps. Screw in the furniture rollers from alfer®
and we’re done. Looks good, doesn’t it! Yes, great! The first unit is ready,
now we just need the shelves. We’re creating these from
rectangular pipes from alfer®. We’ve already cut
these to size. And they fit in the gap perfectly. We drill holes into the support
profile at regular intervals. Practical: the one-off
drill line in the centre. And as a little trick, use a piece of wood so that the gaps between
the bore holes are always the same. We encase the front with a
square-perforated metal sheet from alfer®. We use six rivets to simply attach
the sheet to the support profiles. And here’s the second unit.
It’s still missing its shelves. We could use aluminium
like here, but there are several
different options, such as wooden slats,
which we had the DIY store cut to the right length for us. Now we just need to make
them weatherproof. To prevent the wood from rotting, we’re
painting it with a wood protector stain. Important: only use water-based,
environmentally-friendly wood stains as we want to prepare food
on the wooden slats! Always ensure that the stain is safe for use with food
and saliva-resistant. Simply screw on the slats
and we can continue. Now we’ll create the core
unit for our outdoor kitchen. Built-in sinks like this can be
bought cheaply from any DIY store. And this one fits into our unit perfectly. We also want to add doors
to our sink module. To do this, we’re using square tubes
with a hinge from the combitech® range. We fasten these together
using the plastic connect® connectors. Just a few hits with the
rubber mallet and the joint holds! It couldn’t get much simpler! Great work, and now:
photo frame! Cheeeeese! For the door fronts, we attach
square-perforated metal sheets, which we screw on like the fronts.
First though, we have to drill the holes. The doors are attached using
appropriate coaxis® hinges. Our sink unit is ready! Isn’t it? No, there’s one little thing missing! We collect the waste water from
the sink in a canister. We connect the tap to the
garden hose with a suitable adapter from a DIY store. What do you think? Marlott has had a particularly
great idea for the last module. Double-sided tape prevents the
shelf that is now attached from moving. A metal sheet in which Marlott
has sawn two holes. What’s it for?
We’ll tell you in a moment. alfer® offers a broad range of
hook systems for all purposes. These ones are perfect
for our barbecue utensils. Of course, they fit perfectly into
the groove in the coaxis® profiles. While we’ve been working, Helen has
bought a mobile double induction hob. If the weather turns bad, this can
be easily moved into the house. Of course, our outdoor kitchen
also needs a barbecue. And the circular holes in
the supporting sheet are perfect for holding pots of fresh herbs. Our outdoor kitchen is ready!! The mobile modules offer plenty of
storage space for kitchen utensils. They can be moved and combined
however you like. A true luxury kitchen for the garden,
made almost completely from aluminium. Not only does it look great,
but it won’t rust either. Neither bad weather nor splats of grease
and fat will damage it. In addition to the barbecue, stove and worktop
there is even a sink. Greater luxury for your garden
is barely possible. And now we’ll enjoy our
garden party with our open-air kitchen. An outdoor kitchen that you can
easily build yourself! And now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of our work!
