Ok all just about done with our Santa Maria build. Just have a couple welds to finish, fine tuning and dropping into the masonry box and of course paint a make a steel fire door for the masonry. As always thanks to all the Brethren for input and comments it's all appreciated......keep them coming and please feel free to critique.....we're always looking for ideas

My first weld job. Thanks to teacher Chad. No matter what, the snap, crackle, pop will always get me Chad lol.

Our 24" wheel that we are getting to weld spokes on

Wheels mounted to frame

Close up of tension spring mounted to shaft

Close up of SS aircraft cable . The holes are 1" apart

Close up of cable mounting to grates

Here it is....Frame, Grates and 4" angle iron Masonry mount

Both Grates raised at different heights and they move up/down so smooth

Masonry pit. It's my first time stacking cinder block so I hope it turns out good. I did a dry stack cause you never know....also deciding wether I should cover blocks with spanish tiles, travertine or leave it alone : )
Measurements ID - 55"w x 34.5"d x 33.5" h

Again thank you to all especially Chad for the expertise and help in building this from scratch....I've truly learned a lot. The experience was priceless.

Traeger Lil' Tex 075, Weber 22" and my newest...custom built Santa Maria grill!
