Ray,
When I owned my prototyping business, I paid serious salaries to men, with pockets full of certifications, who could do no better than you..... and they had EVERYTHING to do it with. I tip my hat to you.

Thanks Greg,I appreciate that.  It's a labor of love.  this next pic shows a good angle  and view of the size of this thing.  I cant wait until these  2 pieces are welded together. this is the last for today, the 12inch to the foot  just called and it's off to work, have a good weekend .  I'll post some more when I get back.

   OMG, that thing is really taking shape. I can already see the coal smoke eminateing
from the stack.  
 
   Ray, for those of us that appreciate the workmanship in this kind of thing, let me use Bobby's words, "just beautifull". I can add nothing more than that.
 
   Take care,

Ray, you know I have been thinking.....dangerous I know.........that fire box is so large, if you add a rotiserie we can roast a chicken while you run in the morning and cook lunch at the same time!     Just kidding.

this pic shows  the outside sheets bolted on. I did this instead of using threaded rod , I thought this might hold my angle better.  I will put this whole assembly on the barrel, and tack weld while it is all bolted together.

Only a person who dares to dream and has the fortitude to build those dreams, can understand the significance of that chair. Every true workshop has one. A place for reflection, contemplation and anticipation. From this vantage point can be envisioned projects yet to come. It's also a good place to suck up some suds, before getting out the angle grinder to erase an errant weld..... Ray doesn't appear to have many of those.
 
Thanks for the update, Ray. See you at the Peevo Patio!
