Thanks Steber. My wife had the idea of using reclaimed lumber to cover the new pine 2x4s. Of course I didn't have a problem with it but she didn't know that 100 year old beech wood was more expensive than new standard lumber. She was shocked when I told her how much I had to pay. Now I just need to plane it all down and get it on there. My cousin is a welder by trade so I paid very little to have all my fittings welded on. He made that mash paddle out of one of the sanke tubes and a scrap piece of stainless he had laying around. His company usually makes vending trailers and they bend all their own electrical control panels so he's going to get me my 16x16x8 stainless box because I think $95-100 is crazy for an empty box. As I said, it's a slow process but going slow gives you plenty of time to think about things so you don't have to do them again.
