Got quite a bit accomplished today, think I will have the fabrication done with another work day or two at the most!
Started off by building the top rack.
Added the handles on the racks.
Added a shelf underneath the cooking chamber. Other than maybe throwing some wood on it, I doubt that I will use it to often, but it is more for bracing the legs than anything else.
Next I used a hole saw to cut my air intake holes. There are 2 more holes on the left side.
The firebox door marked out. Also there is a small 1/4" hole directly above each 3" hole, this is where I will attach the spinning plates that I will use to control the air flow.
Firebox door hinged and cutout.
Thanks to TTNuge for stopping by today to take a look! I can't wait until you get your metal so we can see another build in progress. Let me know when you are ready to give the MIG welder a try, I've got plenty of scrap that we can practice on!
Not to much left to do:
Firebox Door Edging
Firebox Door Handle/Latch
Firebox Wood/Coal Grate
