Thanks for the comments guys. Its going to be a work in progress for a while. I really want to get to the point where it's functional then take my time on finishing it.

Got the slabs jointed this weekend but the bisket joiner wasn't working so hopefully we can get to that some time this week. I also need to move the casters out to the edge of the frame. I found out this weekend that it will tip pretty easily when standing on the front or the back. The freezer full of kegs should have enough weight to keep it from tipping but I want to be absolutely sure before attaching the top. Way too much work to have it come crashing down when a few guys are leaning on the edge.

Tested the shanks and taps last night to make sure they fit. I had to cut out a bit more room in the tower but it looks like its going to work. Decided not to go with the black flanges and i think it make it look a lot cleaner as long as I can keep them tight enough it should work.

I wanted to make my own tap handles but didn't have much room to work with so I went with heavy weight chrome taps. The taps are all stainless steel perlicks; 6 of the regular 525 stainless and 2 of the 575 creamer. The shanks are the stainless 1/4" bore. I needed different lengths for the different angles on the inside of the tower in order to make it work; 2 - 5", 5 - 4" and 1 - 3". I bought all of this from kegworks.com.

Sick build. Totally making my live-edge keezer accents look...like accents.

I will, however, point out that the back of your tower looks like a butt. Midpoop.
