Did not get to burn out today... but thats ok I finished up the rest of the details so she's now ready to burn! I can't wait, I'm so lighting her up tomorrow. Gonna be tricky to burn/grind/paint within a short time frame... The rain storms are still wreaking havoc on the build progress. Anyways, as I said I got on the rest of the details today. Got the handles in place and made them out of spanish elm (a very hard dense wood). I fabbed & installed the door stops as well as finished (for the most part) the rest of the grinding and smoothing up!

It's been 3 weeks to the day since I started this project, and I'm feeling pretty proud of the fact that its almost done. Of course I had some help.. well really just one person but he's helped me almost every time I've put the grinding wheel to metal. So I definitely owe him for that . But I really am looking forward to getting some food on this beast. Hoping this rig will help me expand my food business. Cooking is really my passion and I was once told that when your vacation is your vocation you'll always be a happy man. Ok enuf of the senseless ramblings Here are the pics of todays work... Thanks for looking everyone!
