I have been using a freeware 3D program (Wings 3D) to help plan the design for mini-coldbox. I hope these images show up...first time posting pics.

The cube in the pics is a 1.7 cu ft. dorm fridge.

OK, I suck as a carpenter...but, all in all, it's coming together OK. The fridge fits better than it looks in the picture.

Next, I am going to start cutting the foam board and fitting it in place. I've aleady filled a lot of seams with Great Stuff foam filler. I will keep posting as I go...

Advice is always welcome!

I am posting a pic of the part that worried me the most, the cold box area. I have completed the framing and the foam...it came out as well as could be expected (for my skill level anyway). I added some liquid foam to fill in the seams...still need to secure the fridge and seal that up as well.

Next I have to clean up the edges and build the door. This part has me stumped a little...I think I am going to go with a piano hinge and hasp on the other side...i need to make sure I have a good seal with door, so I may have to spend some time mulling this one over. Any suggestions??

Is there a foam strip that I can use as the door seal? Like a 1/4" thick 2 to 3" wide foam like tape strip?
