Wholly Dooley!! My missus would have my marbles in a vice if I built mine on the dining room floor :o

Looks awesome though, nice work! & I bet that won't be the last thing you have to re-do, I lost count of the things I had to do over, lol. :kewl:

As in a child spitting out the dummy when it is upset. A colloquial saying similar to "chucking all the toys out the cot" Basically when someone is REALLY upset.

I understood it. Just got back to the states last year after 4 years in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

I'm a few days behind on this thread but it sounds like exactly the same thing I did on my mini build wbegg.

That moment of realization where you do test fit and are scratching your head and going, "No way this can be right--where's those plans?!?"

In lieu of cutting the grass today, I decided to get the frame on wheels (temporarily) before I start skinning the cat, and add the fire box. took MUCH longer than I thought. I should have had the fab shop cut the squares for the mounting as well. Thank you Harbor Freight for having fixed casters, as my Amazon order for 2 swivel and 2 fixed arrived with 4 swivel casters.

OH, and my Vegetarian Boss at work (I know) has nicknamed this build "The Crematorium". I like the name and may do a laser cut logo on the front door.

That is looking good. Nice wheels too. And there's nothing wrong with four swivel wheels. Sometimes you need to manoever into a tight spot and four swivels allows you to. Two swivel and two fixed make it a multi point turn... just saying... :D

Good point. I may put the other two swivels on.
