Default Round 2-gleaning ideas

Hey Brothers,
I have thoroughly enjoyed this thread! I have NOT READ every page but I have SEEN every page. I began "stealing" ideas and pictures and posting to Evernote after having viewed more than 500 pages. I started from the back to front without knowing which was which. There are some amazing builds to inspire all levels of skill. I am most interested in the simplest of builds for a couple of reasons--aesthestics and my own skill level and budget.
I have officially begun my build! I am in the PLANNING stage. I plan to decide on the build design and assemble all the parts and pieces at once before beginning. I have a restaurant background and will practice 'mise en place', every thing gathered, measured and placed in order of assembly. The idea of a 'practice drum' occurred to me as well, so that my lack of drilling, cutting and welding could be improved multiple times before I have to do it 'for real'.
I enjoy the community of builders and users here. It seems most of you enjoy building and smoking with equal enjoyment. For me it is a necessary evil to get to the fun stuff--serving good food to others.
I suppose this could have been posted in another more appropriate thread, like Cattle Call, but this feels like home right here. I have a large BGE and post on the greeneggers site as
'Q Bruddah.

Thanks to ALL of you who have gone before me and built great smokers.
