Looks cool.

I am a little concerned about your heater though. I am using two 1440 watt heating elements heating about 30 CFM and it is barely enough for a 12 ounce charge. I think if you are going for a 1 pound roaster you should think about a 5kw heater and 10kw if you are shooting for a 2 pounder. You will need to power it with 220v as that will over tax a 120v 20 amp circuit. Your base is large enough for an electric dryer element, which would prolly be the easiest for your heating needs. Keep those pictures coming.
