That is one sweet Keezer! I think those chalkboard taps really make the whole thing pop and worth every penny! Did you find them cheaper or do you just not think they are worth the money? Either way great job!

Also being a wood worker, man I would love to play in your garage. The keezer is looking fantastic as well. Keep up the good work.

Now these are some first class wood working abilities!!! Beautiful job on the keezer so far and excellent choice on the wood species. It's funny because when I was building my rustic keezer, people kept complimenting me on my "craftmanship" and "wood working skills". I kept telling everyone that I was a hack compared to some of the true wood workers on HBT. Installing knotty pine paneling around a 2x4 framed cabinet is a walk in the park compared to this build. I could easily hide my mistakes while trimming it out with cedar logs. Your precision is fantastic and the quality of your build is top notch! All of you future keezer builders take note of this build, because this is how a true professional builds a keezer! You 'da man!

Very nice work! I wish those tapboards came in something else other than walnut! It would look funny on my Cherry Keezer, but it looks great on the mahogony!!

I don't think you can find them much cheaper than $40 each, I like them, but for that price I should have made my own and used the $ on beer ingredients!

I may change my mind once they are actually pulling beer. Thanks for looking!

I got a little shop time in today...so I started wiring the fan and my old temp controller. The ranco (3rd picture)had orange construction style extension cord leads, so I changed the male end to a black 14ga cord and wired the female side into 2 single gang boxes with 110v outlets. I will need 2 things to kick on with the compressor - the exhaust fan and the case fans in the base. The LED lights will have to plug into a full-time live plug.

I tested my wiring on the outlets and cut up my shop vac hose to connect to the bathroom exhaust fan. I plan on sitting the fan in the bottom of the freezer between the keg, and may make a stronger box for it, so I don't crush it with a full corny keg. I will then run the hose through the lid and into the coffin.

I spent about an hour looking at all of the tile at lowes today and finally came out with 6 sheets of this type - SWMBO likes the style so I obliged. When I got home I cut the first piece of insulation, for the lid, to size and glued it in place using this 3M spray.
