    @XLBalco - thanks man!

    @yzzi - I used reclaimed swamp cypress from New Orleans houses.  The top, skirt and legs are pecky cypress, the bottom shelf regular cypress.  Pecky cypress has cavities made by a fungus in the wood.  I filled those in with resin.  Search pecky cypress table and you'll find my post on the build.

    @Steven - thanks man!  I'm not sure if I'm super happy, but then again, just wanted to check it off my list...at least until I get my CNC machine done, then I'll do a mona lisa.

    This is an old thread but came up as top hit when doing a handle. @nolaegghead you sure are a jack of all trades. Festool MFT which means you have their other stuff. .plus metal working, and a Matco tool box which means you're probably a decent mechanic.

    That's rude.

     Thanks.  Old post, old trolls.  egginLA loved to flag me.  No worries here, I am who I am.

    I still have some of those cedar blanks.  I'll need to replace my LBGE handle at some point as it gets (like every handle) hammered with the lid open when grilling. 

    Come to brisket camp in NOLA.  You will enjoy it.

  • As a fan of a more than struggling team (Vol fan here), I think a hobby such as this one to keep me sane during games isn't such a bad idea. Looks awesome!
