Mike's an online friend that has a fabrication / welding business.
He made me and extra large grill top with legs 90 % done, just fit the pieces together and weld here....
It's for the wood burning pool heater emergency after a hurricane hot shower water heater fire pit project in the previous post and will sit in the front of the pit for grilling. Also have the parts to build a swinging arm for a big kettle I picked up on black Friday and fully operational rotisserie set up that I will need to lengthen.
Mike is really a GOOD guy!
I'll post pictures when It gets here and hopefully can have a fire in the thing. If it works when the leaves fall in two months I can burn them and have the pool warm enough to get into as soon as it's cleaned up. I keep wishing I had made the pool shorter and further from the property line so I could enclose it with decorative block filled with concrete.
Add some windows for light and a package unit heat pump and it would be usable year round, easier to maintain, and block the West side on my house where the worse winds of a hurricane would come from. If I slope the roof flat away from the house I will be able to see the back twenty feet of the yard and dock so I could see what was going on out there if the grandkids were fishing, but it's so close to the lot line I'd need a variance to pour a footer all around it to block it.
