Those look very sturdy. For reference, what is the actual size? I'm really confused on the stove with the pedestal base.

The little chimney on the pedestal is only about 4 feet high total. It's an old auxillary air tank with a vented door. We use it on the patio during fall and winter nights. It works well and boils water great for hot cocoa.

Looks like it is surviving quite well.
I have a large dual direct/indirect stick smoker, and built the small one to get my mind cleared as I was a caregiver for a family member who was dying of cancer. It's kinda over built but holding up awesome over the years. I live in Arizona so we don't get much rain to rustem out.

There are smokers that people build that are functional without design, then there are builds that I've seen that are works of art, and are a nightmare to run. If yours functions even half as well as it looks, then it's both, as it couldn't look any better. Even the tools on the side and their holder looks great.

I live in Gilbert about 40 minutes away from you. I've got $4K wrapped up into a my offset SQ36 and my electric Pro 100. The most valuable tool in the box is my 22" Weber. RAY

I love the heater build. I could see myself sitting around that on a cold night.

The cook chamber size is 19"L. X 12" Deep.
As for the other pedestal deal. Its just a fire pit with a coffee warmer/boiling plate on the top.

It's actually my favorite thing to cook on. It takes small wood chunks, holds heat well, and is holding up better than I could've imagined. It now nearly 4 years old and cook so efficiently it's ridiculous.
Just refreshed it with a new coat of BBQ paint.

Wow! Those are some cool builds! I’m digging the anchor detail, I didn’t know Navy was allowed to move so far away from the water?
