We are digging these free PDF plans to build your own portable outdoor kitchen from Studiomama, which has a sink and a watering can underneath so that the gray water can be collected and reused. (How handy for gardeners!) Plus, there's a one gas burner, a chopping board, and a little storage area for tools and condiments.
