Default Freezer lid

I have recently found this thread; and have been able to follow all aspects of the build with one exception. I didn't see a picture on how the hoses were fed from the coffin back into the freezer. I assume a hole was cut through the lid. Does anyone have hints, notes, anything on making this cut?

Yep all I did was use a hole saw that attaches to a drill. It did just fine going through the 1 in plywood top and then the sheet metal of the freezer top and finally through the foam and plastic liner. It was the last thing I did before mounting the coffin to the lid. If your hole saw isn't deep enough take a drill bit and drill all the way through at the center where you want your hole then take your hole saw and do half the hole as deep as you can then do the same from the other side using that small drill hole you did earlier as a guide for the bit in the center of the hole saw. Good luck.

I know there is a description and photos of the holes in the thread somewhere. Sorry I can't direct you right to it. I used a Dremel with a cutoff wheel to cut a square opening, then just protected the edges with duct tape.

I looked through the thread but I could not see what the cubic footage of the freezer was. What size was it?

Default Hope to update by end of summer

I have a 25 CF freezer as a standard keezer, but want to update to this style coffin keezer. Does anyone have plans for this size?
I have already printed most of Jester369's items, but have not found the Google Sketchup plans for it.
Thanks, but my wallet hates it...
Mike

I've noticed that Jester has not been around in quite a while, so I'll post here and ask if anyone has the Google Sketchup plans he was sending out? I'd really like to attempt to do a build like this and would really appreciate the plans.
