Hookedonq's UDS Build(pic heavy)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Built this probably two years but recently joined here and figured I'd share it with yall so here ya go

Started out as your basic 55gal drum


Holes drilled for intakes, therm and handled


Rails welded in for adjustable racks. Made from flat stock and some 3/8 stainless nuts



Got the hinges cut out and the legs welded up



legs and hinges and stack welded on







Lid latch made outta a harbor freight welding hammer




Ball valve handle extension





Removable shelf



Cleaned up and ready for paint


fire basket and ash pan


And finally the finished product and some thin blue smoke

Nice looking drum. I like the adjustable shelf idea and the hinges look great.
