    How do u hook up the water to the sink? Please give written instructions for the whole project I was unable to find them.

    A couple of other ideas would be to add a waste chute in the cutting board with a garbage container underneath. Or add a hinge and install a cooler under the cutting board for a place to keep beverages.

    Using a formica counter top would make it a lot lighter, just make sure you cover it when not using it. Another option is to make your own butcher block with scrap hardwood.

    You could run a copper pipe through the inside of the grill where the coal bed will be and then to the sink to get hot water to a standard faucet with mixing valve. Love the idea of a cooler under the cutting board with a refuse slot adjacent to it. Could even use pallet wood for the majority of it.
