I've wanted to build a UDS for a while now and I've finally gotten a drum and an old 22.5" Weber for parts.

I cut out the bottom because I'm going to invert my drum
I added a strip to the edge

I bent a hoop out of 1/2" square tubing to run around the inside of the top just to make the lid fit better

My bottom as a top, I'll post more pics as my build progresses.
