Default Keezer Build 5.0 GE fridge with wine chiller DONE!! look!

Ok so here is my build its a 5.0 GE fridge with a 16 bottle wine chiller and a wine glass holder to be built above. I'm going for 2 5 gallon Kegs with a tower and a 5lb co2 tank. The collar was a 1x6 but it was too high so I went with a 1x4 instead and the heighth. Let me know what you guys think -Jose

This is my very rough sketch on google sketch up program of what I want the finished product to be. I havent picked the wood so any suggestions are welcome.

nailed in the maple to make a box on the right side where the 16 bottle wine fridge will go and a hanging stem rack for my wine glasses will hang above.

That's going to be cool. Is the back going to remain open for air circulation?

Yes gonna leave back open.Heat from the wine fridge and freezer would be too much to enclose.I haven't seen anyone else do a design with a wine glass holder or chiller in it so hopefully if turns out like I want it.

This is almost exactly what I've been wanting to do! Your sketchup drawing might be exactly what I need to convince SWMBO that its a good idea! I know where to buy all the parts, but does anyone know where I might be able to buy some woodworking skills? lol

Yeah the wine fridge and glass holder is how she said ok for putting in the living room. She wasn't thrilled with the idea but as soon as I mentioned wine she said go for it!
