Here are a few pics as I build the ash pan and charcoal box.
The first is me setting up to cut out the ash pan in the water jet, then it cutting. The ash pan finished and pulled out of the jet. Rolling the expanded metal for the charcoal ring and the finished ring awaiting the stand offs to get it to the right height above the ash pan.
Now I just have to weld a bottom on to the basket and put a ring around the ash pan.
