......and a couple more. Next I am moving onto drywall, cement board, and tile in the brewery. You can keep up on the progress on my brewery thread. I'm trying my hardest to get this done, so that I can start brewing indoors this winter. Tomorrow I am going to try to find time to do a couple ofr 5 gallon partial mashes on the patio. Thanks for following along and for all of the nice comments.

That's an incredible brewery you have. Have followed and enjoyed all of your builds, you have a knack for making some outstanding pieces of furniture.

Took me a few minutes to figure out what you did there, with the re-wording of my original post and all. I'm a little slow on the draw! I thought to myself after reading your post, "damn, that doesn't sound like something I would say, what a pretentious prick I was.......I must have been drunk when I typed that". After combing back through prior posts, I had that ah ha moment. You smart a$$.

Hopp.. I just want to point out that I hate you! I am getting a mill for Christmas and I WAS happy with just that idea. Then.. even though I knew better when I clicked on it.. I go through another one of your posts. My SWMBO is going to kill me.. but a similar project MIGHT have to happen now. Awesome build man!

Be sure to leave the cabinet door open when milling, grain dust is highly explosive and the sparks from the motor can set it off.

You could mount an exhaust fan on the side that blows into a dust catcher and it will also help keep the inside of the cabinet clean because it won't take long before your drawers and everything in them will be covered in grain dust.

Point well taken. I'm not sure if I posted any pics. earlier in the thread, but I ended up completely encapsulating the grain catching compartment, so it is sealed off to the drawers and the motor behind. Here are a couple of crappy pics.....sorry they are sorta blurry, but my camera is taking worse and worse pics. With the way that I have it set up currently, do you think I would have any problems or concers? I plan on taking the shop vac to the compartment every few millings to keep it clean on the inside.
