Nicely done!! How'd you get the temp to drop so fast between pics?

I love the black and the temp control unit.

when I build mine im thinking of some stainless sheeting for the front where the taps are as my kitchen is stainless and black and we have room in the kitchen for it. "walking out to the garage is a PITA, put on your slippers, damn it where is my other slipper, its 30 degrees out there im not stepping on concrete bare footed"

im sure im not the first to think us using stainless instead of staining or painting wood.

Thanks guys.
I used regular ol gloss black Rustoleum to paint it. I think it'll be ok inside, but in the sun the color doesnt look all that great.
I used red oak from Home Depot stained with MinWax. Didnt have a fine blade on my miter saw, so the miters were kinda rough. But I sanded them down and its not all that noticeable.
Also, the wiring diagram I looked up and used for the Love controller was for pre-2008, and completely different. Luckily it didnt burn up when I plugged it in.

nice build, I just ordered my holiday 7.0, what size collar did you use? large enough to fit a corny on the hump? and how did you build the temp controller!?

speaking of such....is there a more modern wiring diagram floating around here that you've found since? i'm torn between the Johnson and the Love....I want the love, but haven't found a decent write-up/wiring diagram that i feel comfortable with.

Very nice looking keezer. Any particular reason you went with the Love controller vs. the Ebay aquarium controller?
