Here are some pictures. I'd love to see what you are designing. Keep us updated.

Just make sure there is enough air. A lot of people use a mesh top with the rest wood. It helps break it down and fill up better

Are you going to draw out any designs before you start fabricating it? I'd love to see what you are doing. Keep us posted.
