Started this build almost a year and a half ago.
It is my own design that is still evolving as I think up more cool stuff to do.
Basically a square cook chamber with some strategically placed curved surfaces to smooth airflow and reduce turbulence.
It will be fully insulated.
Here is how it has come together so far:
The "Kit" consisted of 2 sheets of 1/4" cut to 20" widths, and a section of 12" dia pipe.
First cut. Sprung 2" which is a good illustration of the stresses in a piece of pipe.

Built the tub.
Installing the RF plate
RF plate has a 2 degree diagonal bend that places the left rear corner 1" low for grease drain.
The Firebox tacked up. Got a piece of 3/8 for the floor.
Will add a sacrificial 1/4" plate to the top.
Strongbacks added to guard against warpage.
Been reading about Dave's secondary high air intake, and it is a intriguing concept.
May have to punch a couple holes in this side.
