Did you have to paint the PVC to get the silver/gray color? I am making the same thing right now but with red oak that will be stained..

Nice tower attitude! I really like the diamond plate.

I beg to differ. I've bottled 5 batches of my own and 2 or 3 of a friends. I'm done dude. He (and I) just figured out quickly that when you bottle it's a big pain in the kiester and that when you bottle you share exponentially more than you drink. So kegging is the way to go!

Flat surfaces (like the box) can use standard straight shanks, like this:

To mount directly on round surfaces, use tower shanks:

I used these on 3" pvc and they fit perfectly.
