This is how it stands today. The inlay will be patina copper. If there is enough copper left over the back splash will be patina copper too.
It is on casters so I will be able to roll it away from the wall to change kegs.
Some of the first boards cut. We paid close attention to the grain pattern though we did make one mistake when assembling (I'm not telling you what it was).
The tap board.
One of the sides. The insert is 1/4" hickory plywood. It's floating in a slot in the outside wood. The frame is glued and pocket screwed with biscuit joints to hold the alignment.
Pocket screw joint.
The box coming together. The back is just pine plywood. It will be against the wall.
The top being clamped together. We biscuit jointed the 45 degree joints. It was a serious pain to get those joints exactly flush.
The box on the base with the top and coffin sides. No trim or coffin top yet.
A closer look at the top of the coffin. That was an exercise in patience. There are a lot of angles that had to be exact and it took a whole lot of sanding.
A look at the freezer with three of four kegs.
