I was able to build the collar this weekend. The freezer fits one corny and 5lb co2 tank with no modification. It fits two cornies plus the tank with a 6 inch collar.

I built the collar out of oak and rubbed it with linseed oil. I am going to put the two faucets on the left-hand side. My two perlick faucets and other equipment should be in this week. Hopefully I will have completed photos this weekend.

This freezer was definitely a less expensive option then buying a new sanyo minifridge. I think it is the smallest size freezer that fits home brew kegs which makes it a good choice for small spaces. Also is should only cost around $20/year to run. I plan on insulating the collar with styrofoam. I am not sure whether to permanently attach the collar to the base or just use weather stripping.

Finished it! It is definitely the smallest keezer that fits two corny kegs and a 5 or 10 pound co2 tank. I just need to make a cheap drip tray for it now and organize my lines better.
