That looks really nice!

Where does your fridge give off its heat? If its one of the models that has the heat exchanger coils running on the sides of the metal box, then your just going to be heating the inside of your chamber. You can tell by turning it on and putting your hands on the sides of the fridge. If they are warm, your going to have to figure something else out.

Well Done!!! It looks really nice and I like the design you chose. One thing to consider... You may want to add another muffin fan to circulate the air outside of the fridge. Please let us know how the temperature stratification is throughout the chamber.

I like the stain color you chose.
