    Excellent effort mate. I can imaging sitting beside that on a cold night and warming up. Perhaps a 1/2 ‘n 1/2 grille/hotplate for cooking?

    You carn`t beat washing machine bits, an old wringer drive on the side for a lamb spit roaster would be the go.

    My old spit included an electric motor run through 2x washing machine gearboxes back to back and did approx 1 rpm.

    Air holes? presume you have blocked up the hub hole with something to stop all the coals falling out on the deck?

    It'll definitely need a steel tray under it, the hot coals/ashes will fall out thru the grate for sure, maybe some chicken mesh in the bottom first will help stop it falling thru

    I saw a setup that a guy I know had for stopping the ashes burning his deck - he had about two sackfulls of pumice from the beach sewn into chickenwire in a slab roughly 1m square and about 200mm thick

    Worked a treat
