Another Keezer Build (mid-century modern/Ikea-inspired design).
I started building my keezer almost 2 years ago. It was primarily based on Jester369's keezer project. Mine was going to be slightly bigger with some storage space and the top would overhang like bar. I got it to work [pics here and here] and I've already served countless pints from it but it was just huge and unwieldy so I never got around to finishing it.
Fast forward to November of last year and SWMBO gave me the green light to upgrade our home entertainment center with the caveat that I finish the keezer/bar.
I completely re-thought the design, mainly getting inspiration from gxm's keezer and from this random keezer I ran across a long time ago. I started drawing it up in SketchUp and here's the design we agreed on
here's a detail sketch
on to the build...
plywood board and 2x4 framing attached to the wall for stability
heavy duty drawer slides can support up to 500 lbs.
the keezer is floating off the ground by about 4 inches.
staining the top panels
side panel installed and dry-fitting the front panel
A4J - I love the drawer idea to pull the freezer out of the cabinet. I may steal this idea if SWMBO ever lets me move the freezer out of the garage and into the house.
As for the pictures. I have no problem seeing them since the thread was created. Earlier today, on a different thread, I did have problems seeing pictures. I logged out of HBT (something I never do), and loged back in and I saw the pictures I could not see before. It may be worth a try. I know it is not a free/paid thing as I have never been a paid member, and I have never had problems seeing pictures other than the one time I just referenced.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.
