I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

Looking good - great craftsmanship. Are you going to use something on the doors to get a good seal?

door sealing will be tricky , especially with 1.5" of insulation, re searching gaskets like the ones on walk in coolers

Got the doors and cabinet staining finished, too windy to spray on the clear coat sealer...FYI Dont get carpenters glue on any exposed wood areas , It will not stain and F-ks up your finish ,I had to sand 3 times.... I caulked all the interior seams .And ordered the harware...

ok got my fridge , went with a mobil home unit ,felt I would need bigger that mini fridge . wanted a freezer with coils and fan . also needed condenser coil on the back not bottom . I hope I can bend the lines alittle instead of having to cut a re weld ... my plan is to remove sides and top and keep the back wall in one piece . I want to fit it all in ,then insulate around and up to it , will start cutting tomorrow.
