I like it!
At the price of drip trays I've been trying to think of how to make a good looking one for myself.
The best I can come up with though is a stainless or aluminum shelf like an old refrigerator shelf or a BBQ grill.
I don't know what to use that's got a tight enough grid on the bars and would look good.

I'll keep looking and figure something out. I don't have the resources to fabricate stainless so I've got to keep looking for the right material to build the top from.
