I have a small build going on. I guess I will post progress a few more times. If no interest probably won't continue.

That's why there are "t" slots in the base of most drill presses. Allows you to rig all sorts of stuff with the table out of the way.

I don't get on as often as I used to. I hate the picture posting procedures so I keep my builds to my self.

I can't speak directly about the effect on cooker floors but I do have a lot of experience with wood burning furnaces, inserts, etc. It is unlikely that the floor is going to burn up. I think the wors ...

Find the center of each end using a large set of dividers, hold a 4 foot level vertical intersecting the newly found center mark on each, transfer a mark t ...

As long as we're on the doors, that's probably happening this weekend; any thoughts on a minimum width for a "center strap" to leave between a double door setup?

I was confident that you had a plan. Just jerking your chain. Enjoying the build until I can start another of my own. Carry on Sir.

Nice hinges. Since you have access to a cnc mill you surely have a lathe close. So spin out some pins with grease fittings (bolt threads tend to wear grooves after some time) and that puppy will darn ...

My vertical is considerable larger than yours but maybe you can get a frame of reference.
