    I am building an outdoor BBQ/Bar - Made with pallets (has a corrugated metal sheet at the back, behind the BBQ and a corrugated roof)

    I am trying to keep it as cheep as possible and am considering what worktop material to use. My original thought was to use OSB with Concrete board on top - then tile on top of that

    However - It has been suggested to me to use Lino over the OSB and glue it down and seal it round the edges -

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Thank you

    I used decking boards. Cheap and sturdy, and resist rainwater.

    if you layer your top, water will penetrate between the layers and accelerate rot.

    I was going to say get a GoreTex one!!!

    What about tiles onto ply? I saw one in a kitchen and it looked great!! Lino or decking must be cheapest though.

    Thank you for opinions above. Very helpful

    I am now going with just wood top - treated - and varnished :)

    Thanks again
