Default Jester Keezer Build, with a twist

Props to Jester for inspiration. Had some fun making it unique. 100% red oak and frosted glass sides!

Thanks! $400 for the freezer from lowes, about $400 for the other materials not including the draft beer parts as I already had those. Two months to build mainly because I had to build it in my 1200 sq ft apartment which meant cutting the wood in the parking garage and assembling upstairs. This was the only way the wife would allow a keezer in the living room

Nice job. The bottom part (support with wheels) - is that also red oak? What dimensions on that wood?

Ok I lied about the 100% red oak, thats only the exterior to keep costs down. I did use 5/8 plywood as a top base, tap wall, and the bottom on wheels is just 1X10 pine.
