Here is a picture of the hardware you will need to pretty much complete the project as I built it. [img]http://rp.smugmug.com/photos/94130185-M.jpg[/img] And then of course a burner assembly, this is just a burner from a turkey fryer that you can buy pretty much anywhere. [img]http://rp.smugmug.com/photos/94130090-M.jpg[/img] We'll talk about the burner and related stuff a little later. Ok, first of all you need a couple of sheets of 3/4 inch AC plywood, AC meaning one side is finished. You can use any old plywood, but if you want it to look pretty, get the AC. A sheet runs about $40 here. To keep things flowing right here, remember this, when cutting, rip means with the grain, and crosscut is across the grain. I'm sure you all know that but just in case, I thought I might mention it. Ok, so you have the two sheets, and you are all exctited to get started. The two sheets need to be ripped down to 28 inches, so when you are done you have two sheets 28x96 and two sheets 20x96.

The four short panels that are left will be used later, so don't go throwing them in the wood burner just yet. [img]http://rp.smugmug.com/photos/94130014-M.jpg[/img] With the four 64' panels you will be using, it is a good idea to mark them for identification so you don't get confused when you get going. This is especialy true if you use a bisquit joiner. (More on that later too). [img]http://rp.smugmug.com/photos/94130272-M.jpg[/img]
