Great job! I like the heavy duting sliding drawer and the shelving! Can't wait to see it finished.

Here are a couple of detail pics of the drawer glides. As you can see, they're pretty beefy at about 1.5" high and the steel is about the thickness of a quarter.

and this is where I left of last night. I made the cutouts for the Love controller and a fan/light switch, and I've also stained it.

Very nice design, and it looks like your execution is great too. I look forward to following the progress.

My only thought is that you could have put four casters on the bottom to avoid the pricy slides.

I had it on caster before and it just didn't roll easily on the carpeted floor.

Thanks. I got it for an incredible price. It took a lot of elbow grease to get it all shiny and it does have the budweiser logo on it, but you can't beat the price.

Finally finished it. Here are some updated pics.





Here's a pic with the lights on. The lights in the keezer are tied to the lights in the media center. I can change the color with the push of the button and I can set it to party mode which flashes between the different lights.


I still need to add a drip tray and reconfigure the fan inside but it's done for now!
