Thanks for your post. Your build out looks beautiful. I really like the idea of adding hinges to the collar. I think this would make transferring full kegs easier to manage given the additional height of the collar. I have one question - you list #12 1/2" wood screws for the collar hinge. I know it's been a while but would you confirm this? #12 are fairly thick screws and I don't see them being made smaller than 3/4". #10 can be found 1/2" in length.

Thanks and cheers!

EDIT: The #10 1/2" screws worked great for attaching the hinges to the backside of the collar.

Just got my Kenmore 8.8 (in black) last week...going to follow this build closely. Nice job!

This thread looks to be somewhat old. I'm really hoping you are still available for a question or two. First and foremost... REally NICE! I have some questions if you wouldn't mind? I don't believe there are any pics depicting what seals the collar to the chest and how that was done? it looks like you went with a foam insulation that is attached to the bottom of the collar and is visible in the finished pictures. Is that right? Please help me understand this piece. My Kenmore 8.8 is on order and will be here soon. My intention is to pretty much mimic your build. Really really nice looking and much inspiration has been gained from reviewing this thread. Thanks very much for your time and efforts in putting it here. Do you find that the additional hinges on the rear of the collar are enough to keep all of the above in place? I was initially thinking of a 2x6 pine collar that would match the outside dimensions of the chest with the nicer perimeter (1x8s?) attached to that collar to sandwich and meld the collar to the chest. Please let me get your thoughts. I like your design better for a couple of reasons. The first being the added insulation attained without intrusion into the interior dimensions of the chest. The second reason being the additional 2" in height that is acquired. And I'll add a third. The ability to lift the entire deal on that added set of hinges is great. My only concern is the seal of the 1x8 sitting on the top of the chest. Any feedback on any or all of these points would be greatly appreciated. -M
