Hey guys... Got through what I wanted to today . I managed to cut and install the grate slides and make the racks... The racks were a bit labor intensive... Wanted to go a little above and beyond the regular expanded metal grates. I made these out of 1/4" bar stock! Came out nice. Really liking where this is going. This is what happened today.

First thing I did was to install the slides:

Cleaned up the welds:

Then cut the 3/4" sq bar for the grates and tested fitted them before the next step:

Here's where all the work really came in. First I marked out the long rails to start drilling the holes for the 1/4 bars and center punched them:

Then started drilling:

Then came the time to cut the 84 1/4 bars for the grate and welded the frame together and installed the bars. Still have to tack them in, I'm guessing I can do that sometime in the week:

A close up of the grates:

And here's where we are now...

So far so good guys! Thanks for looking! Hopefully some more updates soon!
