My first projects

The first thing I built was a work bench for the mechanic side of my garage. It is just made out of 2x4's and 1/2" plywood. It stands 36" tall and is 2 feet wide by 6 feet long.

The second thing I built was for my girlfriend and is just a simple raised vegetable garden.

The third thing I built was the bench for my BBQ's. it is made of 2x4's and 1x3 for the top. I just have to level the ground where I have it sitting.

Nice start! Do you have padlocks on your propane grill?

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

Thanks! No, it is just to hold the lid shut as it is just one of those portable ones. Got it for $45 (half price) and it works not too bad.

One of these days (been saying that for years) I'm going to get a Smokey Joe, they are great little grills. We've had a few full size Weber kettle grills, they were all good.

Ya, I've been quite happy with my Smokey Joe. I've also got the Webber charcoal chimney to start the charcoal. I like using the Smokey for doing chicken kabobs and burgers. The propane one is awesome for doing roasted potatoes (diced potatoes with seasoning wrapped in two layers of tin foil, cooked for about 30-40 minutes, flipped every 10 minutes, around 400-500f). I would like to learn more about cooking with charcoal as I've really only used propane most of my life for bbqing.

Good variety of "first projects", and hopefully more will be added to that collection. Enjoy your stay, post often, and be safe.
