That looks great, almost finished up!

For all I have built I wish they had figured a better way to retain all the springs. Like set screws, so simple!

Thanks Shawn.  Bob the plan is a custom made farm table.  Still noodling it but 6x10 rough pine slabs 10ft long, 3 of those on a welded steel base.

Do you need to worry about overspray getting on everything else, like tables etc?  Or is th overspray at that point mostly just a. Fine mist that has dried in the air?

Yeah for the most part it’s dried by the time it hits the ground...and my face...

Ordering two 7 ft fans.  Right now I’m bidding on a Vulcan commerical range with 2 burners, 24 inch griddle and a 26 inch oven.  It’s a $5500 stove new and I’m hoping I can pick this one up used for about $1500

Gonna build the counter/cabinet out of metal studs/track/channel.  Sink on the left end, Range in the middle and I’m thinking of a recessed area in the counter to the right where I might put a Charbroiler but then have a removable section of granite counter for a cover for when its not in use.  Would also like either a set of warming drawers or a holding cabinet. I’ve found holding cabinets that are about the size of the dishwasher and open like a mini fridge and you set pans on rails inside.  Great place to hold food at temp.

Ok. So a little earlier than I had hoped but when they become available at auction you have to jump on it. Not many smaller Vulcan ranges out there to be had at auction

This thing is a tank. 600lbs. Still have a lot of work to do before it gets put to use but now I have a definite plan/dimension for the opening. Now to find a good cook/hold or warming 1/2 cabinet. Likely an Alto Sham. Then a charbroiler




Also got the recessed LED lights in. Painted the trim oil rubbed bronze to match the main and guest house.

Going to start figuring out metal stud construction techniques for the counters and cabinets.

Ordered the fans for the outdoor kitchen.  These supposedly move 14,000cfm.  We shall see.  I wanted 96 inch, but the layout would have had the blades obstructing the lights which creates that strobe effect

So I started wrapping the steel columns in treated lumber. Ripped down some 2x lumber to cover. Hoped to give it some scale and heft with the thicker lumber. Turned out to be about a 7 inch square post. The only problem was where it met the top structure it was sticking way out from being flush. Looked goofy. So off it came and I put 1x cedar on it instead. (.75 actual). Looks better. Will be interesting to try to stain and match the treated posts.

Two on the front done. Will wait until kitchen counters and cabinets along the back are done before I trim those posts.


Now I need to get a 4x4 cedar to make the base caps to cover the plate and bolts.

Thanks JR.  I haven’t forgotten about you.  Your package is sitting on the counter just waiting to be shipped.....

I also planted the fall garden.  I have some tomatoes, jalapeños, bell peppers in green orange, yellow and red, some small onions, basil, rosemary, Napa cabbage, and cauliflower.  Gonna drop some chard and mustard greens, carrots and turnips tomorrow.

So opened up the area at my pistol range to about 50 yards.  I have 180 degrees shooting.  So I ordered some new steel targets 12x20 since I’ve been shooting on the 7.5x12 which are challenging when moving.

May put one 100 yards into the woods on a narrow lane to sight in rifles too.

Started looking at loads for the 300blk.  Finished off the prep on the last 2000 once fired 5.56 lake city brass.  Will clean up and adjust the progressive press and start loading for a change.

We had been ordering most of my steel from ShootingTargets7 along with their rubber straps to hang everything.  Lately we have been going with something like the JC Steel targets slotted targets with AR500 hangers.  They are more expensive but are a lot nicer if you are moving stuff around from time to time.  Also, no hardware or straps to worry about to brake or maintain.  I just put an order in to get a full 5x10 sheet of AR500 cut up for more targets and hanger posts for the club.

I called about AR500 locally and may still buy a sheet and have it jetted just to get my targets free or near free

What are you paying for AR500 and jetting?

I called about AR500 locally and may still buy a sheet and have it jetted just to get my targets free or near free

What are you paying for AR500 and jetting?

$300- $350 for a 4'x8' sheet of 3/8" AR500 and another $300 or so to get it cut.
