Was a bit hung over on Anzac day appreciation day, So I made a fire thingy out of some junk I had lying around

They make one of those on an episode of Paw patrol for cooking Chilli.

I must have seen that episode 3 or 4 times so far.

Love your work mate. Have contemplated doing something similar, can you explain the chemfix bit? I was thinking of bolting direct to the studs as whatever I build kids will no doubt try and climb on it...

Thanks man!

Something similar to the above, but I had to use an additional sleeve as I was dealing with 'hollow' stones... My solution is probably overkill as I used 5 M10 studs/shelf but the oak alone was 7kg for the heaviest one. Better safe than sorry... ;)

Nothing wrong with overkill. As a draughtsman fresh out of polytech I had a go at designing a timber boardwalk structure. The senior engineer had a look at my design, took out half the columns, and reckoned it would be about right.

I am used to design everything a little to strong, unless weight for example is critical. I design press brakes (LVD) for a living and we allways say, it's designed the LVD way when it's overkill. Better to use a few kilograms to much steel :p
