Default Epic Gaming Table

Ten months ago I posted a question in this thread about bridging two home brew kegs because I was building a piece of furniture that would contain a kegerator that would be difficult to change kegs on.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/bridging-two-kegs-95316/

I wanted to come back and let you know what I and a few friends have been working on. Here is a DIY project that we've been working on for about the past year. If any of you are table top RPG gamers in addition to home brew enthusiasts then you should get a kick out of it.

Do you often win your saving throw versus infection?

Most of the time yes but I recently critically failed on my first lager. My second turned out much better though.

I don't play RPG, but that thing is reaaaal nice. Amazing craftsmanship. I can't believe you guys cut all those squares by hand! I am pretty curious how you're going to get your keggerator in there and get all 5 taps hooked up.

I also noticed bud light cans on the table. Shame, shame.

I forwarded your link to a co-worker who has a weekly gaming group. He came over to thank me for costing him $500-$1000 now that he has to have someone build that for him

That was one of the biggest challenges. We also have to worry about sufficient cooling of the coils on the fridge. Hopefully our plans will work out.

lol when that photo was taken we were working in a wood shop that was shared by several other people. I assure you that we will only be drinking quality beer from the taps on the table.

I haven't played since AD&D 2e days with TSR books. I'm so far removed from my pen and paper days I first was trying to figure out where you put the cups for pong...

You have inspiered me to work on another type of gaming table. The beer pong table... Taps would come in real handy on that.
