Older thread but in a search for new keezer ideas came across this and after showing the SWMBO the pics, she is on board. Fuzze, would you mind sharing the Sketchup model you have? Even if incomplete would be a great starting point for designing this thing.
Posted the sketchup here, its done in the 2013 version so you'll need that or newer to view it.
Quick update since i havent finished yet, busy getting married and such. Now that its over and we're back from the honeymoon I have some more time to finally finish this project up.
We found some nice wood at Lowes we actually like, its engineered hardwood(not laminate) bamboo flooring. They have a light and dark color and we went for the darker of the two as the other one is a bit too light and contrasts a bit much.
Just a few pieces put down to see what it looks like. Because of the already hefty weight of this keezer with all of the extra wood and potential storage we decided against tile, so we dont end up busting the caster wheels
Im waiting for my 24" drip tray to show up Thursday so i can finish cutting the wood, ****s expensive but ive already blown so much money on this project whats another $100 ...
Thankfully they are on sale at Beveragefactory, got the inset one with the stainless cover. Although i realized that this drip dray is .75" deep and the bamboo is only 5/8 thick. So ive come to the conclusion that because my top is plywood i will just use a chisel to cut away the top layer of plywood or so where the drip tray goes...i think this should give me adequate depth to get it flush with the top and not compromise the strength of the lid which is 3/4" thick and i only need another 1/8th or so of space. So it should end up looking something like this(only 2x longer as this is the 12")
