Default LeBoeuf's minifridgerator

Hey all, I finally decided that having 2 kegs on tap is not enough. I have the danby fridge that fits 2 kegs.
The plans for now are to make a platform to hold everything including a collar to extend the front. In the future I'll probably make a top with some kind of tower and 4 taps.

I finished the platform some time ago and never took pics... but here are some shots of the collar in the making:

I'm sandwiching 1" blue foam board between 1/8" hardboard to form the sides.

The front support frame


Done Norm style


Full mock-up


Bottom right detail (damn flash)


Top right detail


Back shot


I should make some more progress tomorrow.... everything is still drying right now...

Update: Got everything glued and clamped up.

Here's a shot of the frame on the platform.


Bottom of the platform


Clamps!

The door is pretty well figured out. I'll be using the same door from the fridge. I got the metal strips attached and the bottom door mount on.

I think I may just go ahead and make a top and some skirt trim for this project....

One day it will have a tap box/tower..... one day.....

Oh I should probably come clean on that "5 star rating" lol....
I was messing around and didn't realize that it only took one rating vote to give me all 5 stars... I have no idea how to reverse it...
I guess my only option is to make the thread worthy

Finally made some progress on this project....
My stint in grad school has become a real PITA this semester...

I've got 4 perlick 525s on the way so a tower is in the future.

Shot of the brackets I made to bolt the fridge to the foundation. They use the existing door bracket mounts.


I glued up a top made from cheapo 2x4's


Shot with the door open and some trim mocked up


I have some plans on how to mount the top, but I probably won't get a whole lot further until this semester ends and my work project wraps up...
The flash made the texture difference between the fridge and the collar look worse than it really is
