Some of y'all know about Debbie's first disco inspired by Denny (aka killswitch505).
Seen here.
http://thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47234

When Debbie and I were up in Missouri visiting Troy and family Debbie spied a pile of 24" disc's and asked Troy if she could get one, of course Troy was eager to oblige knowing I was without a current project. Well life got in the way when we returned home but here I go.
My son had it sand blasted for me at his work place.


I filled the hole next, these disc's are right at 3/16" thick.
Beveled and ready for a plug.




After cleaning up the welds I marked the disc down to 20" diameter, this is the size Debbie was looking for.




Next I dissected the disc into fourth's for referencing handles and diving boards.


Center punch the marks for later on.




Next I am laying out the diving boards, as of now this disc will have two 6" x 12" trays.


More to come.
Very Happy

Looking good, so far, k.a.m.!

So 2 diving boards on this one? And 6" X 12" are big ones!

My build is on hold too ... Like you said, life got in the way,
plus work, winter, etc. Just ignore my whining ... thanks.

I look forward to the finished product. Very Happy
