If I did that, it would exceed the capacity of my scale, and it has little to do with the weight of the lid.

looks great. I'll be waiting impatiently for the rest.

Would the gaps for the computer fans look cool with some light coming out of them from LEDs on the computer fans?

14.8 cu ft Maytag from HD:

The maytags are great because the compressor hump is just in one corner rather than all the way across. It will fit 9 kegs easily.

That would be cool!

More pictures to follow tonight. Too many pints of our club's Dry stout last night on tap at Eugene's Rogue brewery to get the pics on.

Except for a couple more coats of finish and custom tap handles, she is finally finished!

The veneering of the panels and getting the curves of the legs laid out just right took some time, but I really like the how it turned out.

The air flows up through the sides well and the skirt is removable. I just need to decide on some tap labels beyond the blue tape.
