Default Keezer project started *pics*

Been getting parts together for our chest freezer kegerator project for the last couple weeks. So far my buddy chad and i have gotten the collar built and put together rest of our parts list. Right now we have it about 50% done, so I'll update it with more pics later, but I'm really happy with how its turned out so far. Hoping to get the first layer of stain on the wood collar tonight.

Still need to order up all the regulators, lines, and the misc stuff.

8.8cu ft Kenmore





Perlick 525SS Creamer faucets :drool:







Custom made bottle opener that we will have mounted off to the side. Thanks to the Wild Hops Print Shop (HBT Vendor)

It's looking great, can't wait to see the finished product. Very interested in doing a similar project in the near future.

These are exciting times in a mans life. The black looks great!

I'll be a few weeks behind you in production. QUESTION: Is there a good type of hinge or support that will hold the keezer open when changing kegs? Pneumatic or spring-loaded?

From what i've heard, the stock hinges should be ok to support it. I'll be finding out here real soon.

I got the stain done last night and i should hopefully have it mounted to the lid by the weekend.

Past week has been putty, sanding, staining, and veneer. Finally got the last bit of stain applied last night and 2nd/final coat of varnish on today. Got the lid seperated and disconnected from the freezer as well. Been working on figuring out how to wire up the switch that controls the light, but I think we should be good to get the lid and collar mounted together tomorrow :word:

edges stained and brought inside to dry


finished up. has a nice shine to it


wiring for the light on the lid
