The trim really makes it look quite classy. Well done.

Great, just trying to remind you to plan ahead.
Nothing worst than an empty space or keg in your keggerator, it just feels wrong!
I have four taps on mine, 5 Co2 lines to force carb the replacement, and just enough room to fit in a 5 gallon carboy to crash chill something before kegging.
Can I just say I really don't miss bottling.

So, with a collar and the CO2 tank on the outside, the Frigidaire 7.2cf freezer will hold what, 6 kegs or 4 kegs and a 6 gallon Better Bottle?

How high is the hump? How tall will the collar have to be for 6 kegs?

There is NO WAY I can come close to what the OP did. That is a piece of fine furniture.

However, I can make a nice, black collar for it. All black, with the stainless taps and drip tray. Probably look pretty good.

The hump measures about 10" high and makes up about 11" of the overall 30" of the length. I used a piece of 7-1/4" oak, so we'll see, but from what I've figured, it should be plenty of height on the hump.

Appreciate the compliments.... and the furniture issue was a deal with the wife. That was the only way she'd agree to have it in the den.

Question for all:

How much height did you leave between the outlet of your taps to the drip tray on your keezers/kegerators? I think most 60 oz pitchers measure about 10 inches tall (?).... so maybe in the range of 12-14 inches?

I have the same dilemma but a much uglier freezer. Your build looks very classy and I like the use of laminate, I might have to consider that for mine. It looks like you ditched the freezer lid, and I take it you are going with a tower. 12-14" sounds about right. I'm probably going closer to 12 or else my freezer will look like it should have more taps that it will. It's about 46" tall now without a tower as I've decided to put it on casters.
