Question on your drip tray, how are you going to clean it out? I gather that it will be flush with the tile but if its fixed how will you empty it?

It's a drain-less drip tray so it will be removable. I'll have it in place when the tile is cut to fit. Then I'll remove it, set the tile, clear silicone the tile-to-wood edge, and set the drip tray back in place. Should be a nice tight fit, yet easily removed for cleaning.

It's doing well - a leaky keg cost me a bottle of CO2, but other than that it's all good. The only regret I have with it is that I didn't use a nicer wood. I used poplar, but I should have ponied up the cash for cherry - it looks good, but could have looked great.
