    Great design! Just a suggestion: Could use a shot of the actual assembly--how to fit the sides fit together. I had to do a close-up to see the little bent tabs. I love this idea. I suppose one could probably attach a small movable flap over the holes in order to adjust the airflow & slow down the coals' burn rate?
