Grill cabinet progress... The photos below show various points in the construction of the three bottoms. The first photo shows what turned out to be the most challenging bit: fabricating “rails” for the bottom to sit into. These rails hold the entire weight of the cabinet, so they have to be nice and strong. I glued them and put screws every three inches – they shouldn't be going anywhere! :) In a couple of the photos you can see the creating clamping I needed to hold the bottoms onto the rails while the glue set up. I finished the third one just before I wrote this post; it's now glued up and creatively clamped. All that remains to do before the granite template guy shows up tomorrow is to flip that last cabinet right-side up, and bolt it back onto the other two. Almost there!
