He friends, now that I got it figured out how to add pictures, I decided to add some of my BBQ pit. A carpenter friend of mine gave me some tounge and grooved hickory flooring that had knots, some holes clear thru etc. Hi knew that I liked hickory smoke. Well I decided not to burn it. I spent some time trying to figure out how to use it to dress up my pit. I drilled and tapped holes in the iron I wanted to cover up. I used stainless bolts. While at the project I always wanted to be able to remove the tounge as it stuck out and people were banging there legs iinto it. Well I cut it off and fixed it so I could remeove it while cooking,,,,,then I added the hickory for decoration. Finished it with linseed oil mixed with a little mineral spirits. I touch it up a day a two ahead of when I will be using it. Makes it look brand new again. I can do stuff like this with wood, but I can not even build a square wood box.
