    I built this little bbq/fire pit a few years ago and it’s been really good but decided it was time to rejuvenate it just making it taller and adding a dining table around the out side.

    Started with a pair of 30x3mm flat bar hoops and plasma cut some 2mm mild to join everything together.

    I didn’t want it to be too difficult to transport so I made 4 gussety wing things to bolt the table to the bbq.

    Then I stretched the legs out to make it a normal dining table height.

    I gave it a fresh coat of stove paint and also replaced the centre disc with stainless instead of mild and made also made up a stainless pan for eggs and such.

    Very nice.

    What will you be making the infills from?

    Looks lovely but what happens when your mother in law sits down and gets a face full of smoke rendering the table only 60/70% sitable

    I went on youtube to find a Bernard manning mother in law joke. Iv just been crying with laughter at how funny he was.

    Suffice to say I cannot stick a link to any I watched as he’s not very pc even though it’s a joke

    Lucky for me I don’t have a mother in law. :clapping:

    In all seriousness I was a bit concerned about that when I first built it but if you chuck a bag or charcoal in and let it settling it for 30 minutes you’ve got to get a heavy gust of wind to blow any real smoke out.

    Im not sure on the infills at the moment. I’m getting a carpenter friend to sort them out for me so we’ll have to see what he’s got in his stock pile.

    Without knowing the weight of the thing, I'd be a little worried about stability - somethign heavy (mum in laws bum?) resting on the table edge looks like it might tip it?

    But more importantly . . . a Montego Estate?

    It’s heavy but all the majority of the weight is in the centre so stability shouldn’t be a problem unless my mate uses iron wood for the tops.

    That is indeed a late Rover Montego.

    Does that mean 'late' as in deceased, or late model? :scared: :D

    I would like to make another at some point just to see if there’s a market for them.
    I’ve got an old compressor receiver hanging about at the moment that I fancy turning into an offset smoker.
