Started this one about a month ago. Got my supplies from Kenny M. Started with some charcoal action wood, Aboo cores, and charcoal riser block.

Here are a few pics of the build. I didn't take a lot of pics along the way. When I get started working I don't think about the camera soon enough.

Kenny, with all this new equipment Roy has now just seems like he is giving in to the dark side. I think he needs some AC/DC lams and some glass to push him over the edge. [laughing]
