Thanks.
If that was true you'd be cooling the air outside your freezer. It is good to be cautious, but I can't see how any would run right behind the skin. I drilled two holes for mine but did not put much pressure on the drill so it didn't burst through and hit anything behind it. I then check the hole before inserting any screws.

I still need to setup a fan to even the temperature difference between top and bottom (which sits around 20-30 degrees with no fan). Temporarily, I put a small fan inside just to see what kind of airflow is necessary, and it brought it almost even top to bottom and it is virtually silent from the outside with the lid shut.

I set it up for two, but this could easily hold four pin locks in the future. Or two pinlocks and a 6.5 gallon carboy, which is what I plan to do for now.
I don't think it will hold four pinlocks. Mine will barely fit four ball locks, and that is with a lot of squeezing. It will probably hold three pinlocks, though.

That's part of the art. I'm curious to see how it looks after my friends get a hold of it.

Our kitchen fridge started putting a funky taste in our ice and even after cleaning, the weird taste persisted. I took advantage of the opportunity and bought my wife a new side by side and converted the old one to a kegerator for my garage. The fridge still works great and since all the beer is sealed, no worries about that funky taste. I love it!!

Those are the ones that are bred for their skills in magic, right?

Few more photos here
I like that alot! I immediately thought about a sliding fabric/curtain for the cabinet. Mount a rod or track under the edge, have it slide from left to right so it's out of the way when you open it. That way no worry about overheating?
