Thanks man. I got the first coat of polyurethane on all of the components last night. I took a few pics, but didn't have time to post them last night. I brought my SD card to work from my camera, but my office computer doesn't seem to read the card. Pics. later tonight.

Like I said, less than 90 minutes to Gatlinburg. Happy to take the kids hiking while you build me one.

Here are a few pics that I took a couple of nights ago after applying the first coat of polyurethane to all of the individual components/pieces. After the first coat, I will fill all of the little nail holes and caulk any gaps with a natural wood caulk that I found for hardwood flooring.

Once the first coat was dry, I slid the drawers back in, put the door in the r/o, and set the hopper/shroud into position to see how it all looks together. I also put the lid on the grain storage bin. After snapping a few pic. I disassembled the pieces and got them ready for nail filling, caulking, and light sanding. I was able to get a second coat on last night after I gave up on the Tigers ass whoopin'. Today, I will do another light sanding and apply the third coat of poly. The wood grain and cedar colors look better and better with each coat. Can't wait to get the stone on over the weekend!

Applied the final coat of polyurethane this afternoon. Once everything was dry, I reassembled the grain mill, pulley, belt, etc. and installed the drawer knobs, door handle, and electrical trims. I then reattached the lid to the grain bin and rolled everything into it's final resting position. I am very happy with how these are turning out so far. I need to build a chute to direct the milled grains into the center of the bucket below, as the r/o for the mill ended up further back than I expected. No problem, I have plenty of lumber scraps laying around. I'll get these things tiled over the weekend, so I can move on to grout for these pieces and my fermentation chambers. Almost there!

I'm jealous of your setup man. What are you putting on the studs, if you don't mind me asking? Rock? Waynescoating? stainless? T&G? Magic?

Thanks Ted. I'm going to use green board (water resistant drywall) for the walls. Then, directly behind the actual brewing station, I'll install 1/2 inch cement board. The wall surface behind the brewing table will be tiled in travertine stone from the floor up to the ventilation hood. I have a couple of cases of 18" x 18" polished travertine left over from my basement bathroom. My brewing table is 6 ft. long, so I will run 2 courses of 4 tiles, which will give 6 feet wide x 3 feet high with polished travertine. I will then use the same tumbled travertine that I used on my keezer, behind my bar, on my fermentation chambers, mill, etc. to tile the upper 3 ft. x 6 ft. section up to the hood. Make sense?

I worked most of the day installing gutter filters on my house, but found a little time after dinner and before the World Series to work on the mill and bin. Cement board and stone tile installed! A bunch of pics to follow.

More pics......sorry about the picture quality on some of these. I'm using a really old Canon 7.1 mp camera that has been designated for my brewing projects. Sometimes the pics. are a little blurry, sometimes not and I don't always know until they are posted.
