i figure i'll make some legs out of bolts and give it a whirl next weekend. i'll let you know how it works.
I think the mesh is going to be too close to allow the ash to fall through. You might try and cut out some of the wire to make the holes bigger (think 3/4" expanded metal) then I don't see why it won't work.

Let us know how it turns out.
