Here are the last pics of the build. I decided to not permanently attach the insulation. It is a snug fit. All openings and the edges of the electrical boxes are sealed with silicone caulk.

Very nice! I wish I had the skills to put something like that together! I have the same CO2 regulator, do you find it to be so heavy that it tips your 5lb tank over?

I'm so glad you opted for the cleaner 45 degree cut on the corners of the collar. Looks SO much better than some of the others I've seen. Great job, I can tell you put a lot of effort into it.

If I was closer to you I would be glad to assist. Its a great project to learn some basic handy skills.

It does tip it over. I have the tank placed in the bottom of the freezer against the hump and the regulator just reaches the wall above the hump for balance.

I almost went with 2x8 and was going to do regular butt joints with some type of embellishments but opted for the more clean modern look of the miter. My SWMBO is fully behind this design for future kitchen or living room placement.

It looks great. I am looking at building one as well. Do you happen to have a list of all the part you purchased to put this together?

I'm putting one together tomorrow so I can see what the total final wallet damage was. I'll post it up.

Very nice work! It's nice to see the thought, time and care you put into it instead of just throwing something together. Gives me something to work forward to. I'm gonna have to tag this to come back for when I do mine. Once again kudos!!

Awesome job.... This is the first build that has ever made me want to give up my converted commercial kegerator.
