Yes Jim, that was mine. I used mahogany for the slats and handle. I finished it with old masters American walnut ( I think) gel stain. I protected the wood with spar urethane. Edit: It was old masters red mahogany gel stain.

Do you use the grill, Steve? Are you able to maintain it in that condition while allowing it to be the work horse that it is?

When I was all done with that grill I tucked it into a corner of my garage. I haven't cooked on it once. I obtained a nearly identical grill to cook on while restoring the other one. It has become my everyday grill. This is a picture of the grill I use: 20210723_140335.jpg

That's exactly why I can't see creating wood slats on mine. Would be gorgeous but I'd have to either keep it covered and unused, or start a museum, or mess it up.
