    Nice, I've just started to build my first enclosure. You going sliding glass doors or a hinged one? I can't make up my mind. Also what is going in there?

    Today's update routed a rebate into the top for a piece of glass also put a nice piece of moulding on the front to hide the end grain and stained it with water based jarrah stain tomorrow I'll get the glass for the top and the sliding doors and air vents and varnish with water based varnish. image.jpg

    Photos work, looking good what is going in there? I'm guessing the tile is going to be your only heat source given the glass top?
