Here's the prelim drawing of the side. Basically, a scaled down version of the keezers side. Lid will open to the front for access to shanks and hoses.



And while I'm at it, here's how I plan it to look from the front.

Great stuff, Jake! Good info there.

How did you attach the side panels to the front panel? Did you miter the corners?

No miters on the corners. Trying to copy the Ice Box, I used the same butt joints as on it. The styles are 1 X 3 (3/4” x 2 ½” actually), so I cut ¾” off the side style so that when they are joined together, each one is 2 ½” wide. The red line in the below picture is the joint. Put everything together with dowels and glue.

Making a little progress. Sides of coffen are cut and one is glued and clamped together. Sure wish I had more clamps...



Waiting for clamps, I finished up the gauge & CO2 bottle rack. There's a board running down the back of the bottle, attached to the gauge rack, that I will put a strap on to hold it in place. The top of the rack is velcro'd to the walls of the frezzer and the bottle board to the hump.

That's looking great. I might have to UN-subscribe to this thread, it's making my build look ghetto

So what kind of liner did you cut for the bottom of the freezer? I need to get something like that and am having a hard time finding something.

The liner is from Home Depot. $2 a foot and it works great. I found it by the rolls of outdoor carpet. Here's a link.

Im looking forward to seeing pics of the lid and how you attach it to the freezer lid.

Bru,
Here's a drawing of how the top is attached to the freezers lid. I've got it attached, but I have not done any finish work on it as I'm using it as a work surface.

Thanks. Will you be re-enforcing the hinges or do you think they'll be strong enough ?
