I was considering buying this exact model, but I wanted to do two draft towers coming up from the lid. has anyone seen anyone do this with this model before? I know this is a popular freezer, but i couldnt find any pics of it with draft towers....just nervous that there are coolant lines running through the top?

I used the GE 7 cu. ft. for mine and no, there are no lines in the top Goose. AZ....I did the whole cabinet, with decorative lid, and full coffin equiped with coffin cooling fans, a dual input/dual output temp. controller, and four 525ss Perlicks. Let me know if I can offer any advice or you can check out my thread. I have to warn you that my thread got ridiculously long, so if there are specific questions that you have about how I did something then let me know and I can point you to the right page on the thread. Good luck and keep us posted.

you generally don't see coolant lines run through doors

I saw it at HD. Here is the description...

"Oil Rubbed Bronze Waves PVC Backsplash to create a bold and dramatic accent. This backsplash is made of PVC and is water and corrosion resistant for exceptional durability."

It is a backsplash and thought it might be interesting to try. Although it may go horribly wrong too.

Thanks Hoppopotomus. You have a great build and I would def appriciate any input and or suggestions as this is new to me. I was thinking for the top I would do wood of some sort. I like the look of the strip wood glued together (butcher block like) as a top. I am at a toss up as far as the tower direction or coffin.

Hi Rouge...I will post some pictures soon of the freezer itself if it helps you. I took the lid off yesterday with no problems so you would be fine. I too may opt for two draft towers as I like the clean look of them, but my mind always changes after a few brews.

Thanks AZ. I guess it was dumb for me to ask about the coolant lines, of course there isn't any hahah. I found an older model GE 7.0 and the Magic Chef 7.2 for pretty decent prices (used).

Let me know how you like the GE, and if you have the model number, shoot it over if you could. Thanks!

No worries Rogue... the model number is FCM7SUWW. HD has a sale on this model often. I got it with free delivery for like $170 I want to say. You def do not need to buy new though. Used you can often get more freezer for less money and you do not feel as bad drilling into it I have seen other people on the DIY thread using this model as well.

Happy to help in any way that I can. I had a blast building mine and I am now applying the same design concept for rustic ferm. chambers. Hopefully building the decorative lids this wk. with cedar log trim, knotty pine, and tumbled travertine to match the keezer. Good luck and keep us posted!

Took off the lid and bought some lumber today. This would go faster if I did not have to keep going to work
