Snow Peak Addiction

Prototype with the lid

Thoughts so far:

- it is fun to do but it is a lot of work without templates or a jig of some sort (and a woodworking shop with lots of tools :))
- the top is now solid wood with hardwood trim, which is nice but makes it a bit heavy. I might make a skeleton version next.
- it is a quite precise process to get the lid to run smoothly. Once you have assembled the top, that is it, you can't fidget with it any more because the L profile is covered by the trim
- the trim needs to be smooth and finished before you add it, or else you will need to sand the top and risk damaging the black finish (which of course I managed to do :giggle:)
- once assembled the construction is very strong. I could sit on the lid so putting other boxes on top of it is no problem what so ever.



these look awesome...great job! Have you put any thought in to selling some? :cool: I might know a guy
 
So a lot of new got its maiden voyage this weekend on a kayaking trip to rainy East TN. New stoves, Camp Chef and Snow Peak and all of my new IGT collection. Oh yea and a new Jackson Karma kayak.
Great setup! Are you pleased how everything worked? How did the did the wok burner work on propane gas, instead of liquid?

The wok burner was on propane and worked great. I was really happy with the setup and it made cooking a much better experience all around. The only drawback is that much IGT stuff in one bag is heavy!!
 
Well, I bought an older 4WD van and am toying with the idea of mounting an IGT4 on 48 inch drawer slides (under the bed and opening out the rear doors). This would allow me to keep the GS-220, CK-130, and CK-050 in there full-time and use the CK-050 as a sink for doing dishes (as well as storing my utensils, etc.). Might put a Scottle in there somewhere too. Anyone think this will work? Anyone seen it done before?

That's kind of what I am toying with. The slots on the edge of the IGT frame can't be too hard to adapt to the slides. It would be nice to make the frame easily removable, so if'n you wanted to set up the kitchen somewhere else, you could. Just pop some legs on...

Glad to hear I'm not the only one. :) I'm not interested in making it removable, and I don't want to monkey around with the legs. IMO the IGT would be much more popular in N.A. if they had made the legs foldable instead of separate.

I'm thinking about a huge drawer, 48 inches long-ish , appr. 20 inches wide, and about 14 inches deep. This would allow the IGT to sit on the top and then I would build a full bottom that would hold TONS of dishes, frying pans, spatulas, etc. with dividers and the whole works! Everything would be open and very easy to get to while cooking.

Still mulling it all over. Where on earth do I find 48 inch drawer slides that are rated for 200 lbs and have lock in & out capability? Do they cost a million $?

Don't plan on selling these. I would never pass my own Quality Control :)
I plan to make another top/lid this weekend. I am still pondering on the best construction of the top.
Happy to help anyone with how I made the set or measurements though (y)

One of the beautiful things about the IGT is that you can change the legs depending on your setup. I rarely setup twice the same way, always finding ways to meet the camp layout or the number of people. It wouldn’t be as versatile if the legs didn’t detach.

You’re point is valid though, and think that’s why they just came out with the IGT Slim.

That is very nice. Cool setup and like the enamelware. What are the stacking shelves under the IGT4 frame?
The wok burner is something that has been on my list for years now. Maybe someday :unsure:

I love looking at all the setups. Perhaps I am wrong but I don't think there was anything like the 'Snowpeak Way' event outside of Japan. I don't know if there are many Europeans on this thread, but I wouldn't mind organising something like that. What a sight it would be :cool:

It looks like Snow Peak is planning to have a Snow Peak Way event in the US sometime. Looks like fun.
