  • I am currently in the middle of this project. Waiting for the first layer of concrete to dry before I put in the fire brick. This project is very labor intensive. I had NO IDEA what I was in for... oh well no turning back now, and I'm sure it will look great. Thanks Ben!

  • I'd like to have this outside on my deck, but I think for right now I'd rather have one in my kitchen to use as an island, with a few minor adjustments of course. And since I'm wanting to resurface my cabinets using chalk paint, I'd probably finish this in chalk paint. Very nice, If I just that Ryobi tool kit.
