Nice door Russ, the detail looks great, the flanges may have just been extra weight that you could have avoided, the door should stay put by itself ? Atleast mine does

Russ, beautiful door. You should be proud.

They would be easy to grind off or just leave some tabs (legs) at two places in front and back. That is what I did with my blast door because it is just a sheet and has no real thickness.

Mr. Chip/V,

Thanks,

I could probably save a few ounces but I am afraid I would just butcher the fine work of the welder. I will just have to hoist a few more beers to get the arms in shape to lift the door.

And some fine work it is, my insulated door weighs in at 17 lbs and I find that a beer or two lubricates the arms just enough to make it slide in and out easier.

Hey Dennis

I'm tackling that too once yard is finished. making the boards across the top and down each end. That section will fold up to allow each end to extend with another section folding down to create legs for the extension so it can sit 12-16. building a single bench seat to slip in underneath. only need one seat as I am building seats into the wall structure. All in stainless and some nice decking board.

Sounds like an interesting design, I would love to see a drawing or photos of the progress.

Haven't started yet. Just think of each end, folding up, then legs drop down.

Continue to slowly putt along working on the WFO. Finished the brown coat as my base for the copper shingles. Now the tedious stuff starts. Picked up a 48" sheet metal brake to help make the shingles. Going to let the brown coat dry a week before starting the shingle work. Also, my small but happy San Marzano tomatos grown from seed are doing fine.
