Well as usual around here, things did not go as planned for the first build day. I got the lid made, well at least started. Maybe tomorrow I'll get more help, not that I need it, but I spent all day waitin for the kids to participate, which they never did LOL One freebie ( blue one ) and one salvaged ( use to be the top barrel in my double barrel stove ). I have some patch work to do with the welder, but I'm always looking for a reason to improve my welding skills. SUPER DOME!! Now thats what I call head room!! Fits like a glove now I just have to grind it smooth and weld the 6" hole shut with some scrap left over from the salvage barrel. Tomorrow I'll cut the top out of the blue one and do a good burn out!! Might work on drillin the holes for vents and grates. Bout time to make a trip to the hardware store!!
