Thanks everyone for the kind words. I was able to get in the garage for a few minutes last night, but I do not really have any pictures to show yet. I am hoping to get the trim around the top section done tonight and I will snap more pictures. After that it is basically the coffin, wiring and plumbing!

Few new pictures.. have not had a chance to make much progress because.. well life happens. I should have some more pictures up Friday though.

The base is basically done (except filling screw holes and staining).


Finished the cabinet on the left side..


Started on the top.. got some trim added and started to frame up the coffin.


Forgive my mess with the tools and stuff in the way.. I just got to that point and snapped a picture before I had to go in the house.

Ok, I know I said it would be tomorrow before I put up anymore pictures, but Santa made an early stop at my house this year and I just couldnt resist sharing.

There is only 1 shank in the picture because I already had the other 3, was a Chirstmas present from my SWMBO last year. I had only planned on doing 3 taps, but as you have already seen I am making it a 4 tap system now. In the bigger plastic bag are SS tailpiece and a bunch of swivel joints to attach everything. The keg is a coke keg converted to ball lock. Even though I have room for the pepsi keg with my modifications I only had 3 kegs. I figured if I have to buy one anyway I might as well go ahead and get the converted coke keg so there were no issues at all to worry with. I should make it out to the garage tonight to work on the coffin some more. We will see if that works out.

Ok guys.. as promised here are a few my picutres. I didnt get to do as much as I wanted, but I made great progress just because SWMBO and I went and picked out the tile for the top. The coffin is just held together by clamps right now, but hopefully I will find time to change that over the weekend. I am still waiting on my rope light to come in so that I can finish it out. Plus I have to create an access panel for the back.

Heres a shot of my lovely assistant holding things together to show the color of the tile we went with.

Thanks.. got it here:

http://www.barsupplies.com/stainless...ray-p-349.html

I am thinking about drilling a hole through it and down through the lid and running a hose down to a bucket so that I will be functional. But I have to come up with something that I can attach to it so that liquid doesnt seep through and rot the wood.

I plugged mine with a SS Lag bolt. Just cut the threads off put on the opening and siliconed it up. Everyone thinks its just a domed plug and that's if I point it out. Most don't even see it through the grate.

Yeah, that's more or less what I had in mind. I took off work early today and made more good progress.. Will try to post pics later tonight or tomorrow.

That is some nice work for someone who only has experience with birdhouses

Looking forward to more pics.
