    That thing is a beast! Not exactly portable but it sure looks like you designed it well.

    Those extensions that go up above the doors, ... are they magnetic door holder openers?  

    edit: well I see from your next picture that they are mounted on the doors. Maybe a counter weight?

  10. counterweights is correct. the steel is 3/8" thick . They were way too heavy to not have counterweight.

    I like it, thats a really cool design.

    Are you planning for a warm spot in the center or are you adding heat diffuser tubes from the firebox toward each end?
     
  12. i haven't thought of that. I just have a damper plate on the inside.

    Have you finished this build? This is exactly what I was planning on doing with mine. Did you just stick with the damper plate or did you add diffuser plates? Good looking build.
