We finally finished! Now I can play in the wood-shop more. Just in time for my wifes B day party in two weeks. Started this in Jan working on it on my days off … Man this one dragged on. More work than we thought but worth it. Lj’s are invited anytime! Breaking in the Margarita machine and cooking first steaks on new grill priceless. If not for the woodworking skills I have learned here and from others we could not have tackled this by ourselves.
Thx for looking.

Ken, great job on that grill set up, totally outstanding. Jobs like that takes time and can not be rushed and it shows, you took your time and patience to perfect your work. Awesome craftsmanship.

Thx everyone for the nice comments. We tried to do it right. I read and read and read and researched so much that you would have thought I was building and airplane.

Good-thing you all like steaks med-rare, being its a rule that a steaks like rib-eye or fillet can’t be cooked past that…. LOL

What’s really cool is how you got it all to match the walls as well. Nice project Ken! Medium rare for me as well. Oh and next time, fill the hot-tub with bikini’s…we LumberJocks live for cheap thrills!

I just had the feeling of missing a big moment a while back
it most have been when you fired the BBQ and the fireplace up for the first steak and a lager
your little back-yard project looks realy awesome

sorry to make you sad now
becourse you ain´t gone use it the next ½ year
if you want to make your quota of sawdust this year
you know you going to pay if you don´t

take care

Dennis
