    Blue Silver B - Slat color?

    I'm about to start rehabbing a Silver B, bluehead. What is your opinion on woods/stain color for the wood slats? Light/dark? Just trying to get some ideas, thanks.

    I’d go a bit more toward the darker shade, it will show less “gunk”.

    Timothy is definitely right about darker being forgiving. I love it on my "blackout look" Skyline. My first reaction, though, was to recommend a light color wood for a blue hood, just because I think it will set off the blue better. Harder to care for, though. You probably can't go that wrong either way. Wood nicely stained and coated is always beautiful!

    Here's a blue kettle (not perfect) with light color wood handles just as something to compare:

    None I am pretty sure. But, you can fit the wood tables in place of the thermoset. I have never tried, but I think a person with a little skill could also adapt the newer fold-down bracket to an old-style wood slat fold-down table.

    I really like the blue with light wood posted by Bobby.

    Correct. It is a Frankengrill.
