Default The Natural Cedar Look....

A snowstorm knocked down some limbs in the yard, and a buddy donated an old fridge.... So I built this custom Kegerator. Holds 4-5 cornies easily. The handles were striped of bark and polished with Poly. The rest just came from stuff laying around the garage. BTW, the wolf hat on swmbo was a gift from Ted Nugent.

Here she is. Just finished her tonight but my wrench wasn't big enough to tighten my fittings and I was losing C02. Will have to wait til tomorrow to get one. Go figure. First real attempt at anything even remotely like this in terms of woodwork/diy. I think I did well. It seals up enough and holds the temp much better than I expected. The pics are from my phone and lighting sucks hence the low quality.

When I built mine, I was renting the across the street from my mom. I grew up in that house and knew she had only a few random tools. My wrenches only went to 1" and my largest crescent wasn't big enough. I treated through her garage and out of the three wrenches I found, one was the correct size. I promptly thanked her and informed her I was keeping the wrench. I've never had that happen. Typically, when the tool choice is limited, you are not lucky enough to find the right tool.

Just (mostly) finished my Kegerator. It was free from my parents (their garage fridge for many years). It started out that 80's cream color. I stripped it down, primed it, painted it black. I took out all the ice maker/dispenser junk & covered the hole with a cutting board that happened to be the right size. I then foam insulated everything I could & installed an Auberin PID as a temp controller. I think I can fit 5 or 6 corny kegs in the right side and a few in the left if needed.

Also, thanks for all the inspiration on this thread. I bet I looked through 100+ of these pages looking at everyone's builds before deciding what to do.

theschick - I love the way yours turned out!

What kind of trim did you use around the color? And was the fridge black or did you paint it?

Thanks! It was pine trim that I found at Lowes, the collar is red oak. It took me a few tries to get them to stain somewhat similarly. I am quite happy how it turned out. Oh, and it was a white freezer, I painted it black.
