I added some reinforcement steel to support the handle bars.

First I had mounted the bars at the top of the cabinet but I'm tall and I thought it would be better served if I lowered them to a more reasonable height so I added this piece of sheet metal to give it plenty of support.

Here I tig welded the corners to stiffen the cabinet.

I used rivets on all the sheet metal for a strong long life of service, Yum!

The cabinet may get pretty hot  so, I wanted to create some kind of heat shield, and add a touch of aesthetics to give it a little character. I made these spider webs from the file racks and spot welded them in place with the wire feed mig welder.  

webs are done, for now next the burner and controls then to paint!
