Well I was able to get some stuff done this week. I didn't want all my "stuff"; paper, lighter, tuscan grill, rib rack, starter wood, etc.visible from the front so I put it on the end. I put the opening for the tools right next to the oven because it seems like I always nee also have to find some tile for the backsplash.

Wow, VERY nicely done! And quickly done! I'm impressed.

I love the metal rack you put in the wood/paper storage area to keep the elements separate. Brilliant!

Looks awesome Mark - nice contrast. I think moving the ugly to the side was brilliant as well. It's amazing what will try to live there.

Thanks Les,
Better to hide the ugly. By the way, I'm still laughing about your comment to Dino about the Opus.

Wow Mark, the El Dorado stonework looks terrific. You do that yourself? How's it done? Do you just mortar the backs and mount them on your concrete block or is some sort of "scratch coat" needed first?

BTW: Kobe beef gets Screeming Eagle (guess I'm eating ground beef for a while) -

Oh, nice oven tools, great storage area too. I'll have to start thinking about that too, 2 days of cooking and I can see that organization is important. Thanks for sharing your pics and ideas, take care, Dino

Thanks Dino,
I did get have some help with the stone. I did the layout and made the corners and the other guy set it. A scratch coat isn't necessary, I just mixed a little thinset into the mortar for a little stickiness and went directly on the block.
I did go to cellartracker and read some of your tasting notes. With over 270 notes I stuck with 09 notes. Very nice reviews!

Many thanks to Jim (jcg31) for the design and more importantly the detailed instructions to build this door. I found it really difficult to build, but I don't have the obvious skills that Jim has. I am very happy with the result.
This is probably the greastest example of piracy on the entire FB site. But he did give us all the instructions, so......... Thanks again Jim.
