I normally just hang out in the forums and read as much as I can. And it was from this forum that I learned how to build my own keezer. So I figured I would show my keezer build and hopefully it helps someone else out, much like all of you guys have helped me.
I started with a 7.2 cu. ft. freezer from Sears, I think it's a Kenmore. I ordered a regulator, gas lines, bev lines, three way manifold, ball lock connectors, and Perlick faucets from Keg Outlet.
Next, I took off the lid, hinges, and seal.
I decided to use 1"x6" for the collar. I'm not a very handy person, so instead of trying to miter the corners, I just butted the boards against each other and used a brad gun. I used a 1" spade bit to put the holes for the shanks off to the right. I also drilled holes for the handle. I used a polyurethane stain (oak colored) to seal the wood. Lastly, I added some corner brackets and sealed the edges with clear silicone. The piece of 2"x4" I added on the back of the collar is for the three way manifold.
Once the lid was finished, I needed to reattach it. I had to use washers to space the hinges just right for the lid to sit flush. I also added two rows of 1/4" weather stripping to the bottom of the wood.
