    I would say a shelf IS a necessity, especially if you use a probe thermo when cooking

    I dig it, dude! I like the lid idea, though you might think about keyhole slotting either the lid or the hinge for easy removal. On a windy day, you are going to have yourself an effective wing on your hands......or rather, on the ground.

    Nice work!

    Nice all around... love the paint scheme! :)
  10. thanks all for the nice comments. that hinge thing was a BEAR to get just right , not being real mechanical or that good of an engineer( as a locksmith , I know locks , safes , etc. , but most other stuff gives me a hard time !! ) It helps when it is fun to do.

    Like the hinge. I would like hear how it works.

    agree with Crewdawg -- you gotta have the shelf for thermos, etc.
