Default My Keezer thread (I finally have one!!)

So after forever I finally have the chance to start my keezer. The best part is the wife said I can put it in the living room, provided that I make presentable.

Here it is, 7.1 cubic foot fridigare




Marked everything out



Tile is laid


Top is cut out


This is as far as I got before the wife and kid came home. Will continue the journey tomorrow

Awesome, good luck! I have an old school double kegerator, but I just picked up some extra kegs, so now I'm looking to set up a keezer.

I saw a sweet one in a recent byo magazine that was black with a dark cherry stained wood collar. Keeping an eye on craigslist, but might just have to drop the $250 on a new one later this year, and gather my accessories in the meantime.

Look forward to seeing how your build goes! Have fun!

Thanks I'm hoping to get the the irish coffin built tomorrow as well as getting a first coat of stain on everything. The latter might not happen since I no skills as a wood worker, so it seems like everything is taking twice as long as it should.

So I made a little more progress today while the wife was at work. I didn't get as far as I would have liked since on her way out of the garage she smashed the passager mirror into the side of the garage door from. Anyway I did get a few things done

cut the holes to feed my lines through


finished the coffin


and did a quick test fit.


thats about as far as I got, maybe if I'm nice I can sneak away from the wife and work on staining tonight.

I think that's going to be the new record for world's smallest keezer.

Seriously, congrats. Looking good.

Well I fell short of my goal of finishing today. Still seems to be a lot of work left for me to do on this pig.

but i did get the coffin insulated


and glued the skin around the keezer
