And to think, I thought I was done...then I read the line above and it got me thinking...

The fact of the matter is that it does need to be movable for my yard.

Let me say, also, that I am not that handy. So if things look a little strange, now you know why.

I started with a wire frame for support on top of 2x4's, I wanted to keep the wood away from Direct Heat Contact as much as possible.

The wheels were a pain in the arse for me. Trying to find the stuff needed, required a lot of trips to HD, Lowes & local hardware stores.

I bolted the axle to the UDS frame using U-Bolts, I created spacers using PVC, which were painted Black and finally capped the axle.

Boy, I am even laying on the ground for this thing....

Started coating the wood with Thompson Water Seal.

I plan on getting a bigger sheet of metal as a hot plate.

I also plan on closing the back and sides, adding a shelf or two and utillty hooks galore.

Oh, ya' and a bottle opener as well!
