There were no coils in the bottom of that fridge. But I wont vouch for every fridge out there

Let's get some stain on that beast! And put up some pics, too!

That had some real potential, is this project dead, is that furniture just sitting like that?

It is fully functional and has been in heavy use over the last year. I have not put stain or trim on it, but I was in desperate need of the book case and ran out of free time to work on this. I still plan on staining and cleaning it up, but that will probably happen when we move next.

Besides, I am a huge fan of function over form, so as long as it is working I am happy even if the wood is unstained

This thread has given me some good ideas for my impending fermentation station. I'm using an old side-by-side fridge right now and it is too big and small at the same time. It takes up a lot of space and the freezer side is largely a waste (though I do store my grain in there), and the fridge side will only hold one 6 gal bucket and two Mr. Beer fermentors.
