Made some more headway on the Keezer today. Tore it all down to get the base finished - man, that sucked!

Here is the dolly, upside down obviously! The thing in the middle is the fan that will draw air up from the bottom and force it up the sides and out the gap between the top of the walls and the overhanging trim on the lid.



Here it is with the luan bottom on it



Here is a closeup of the fan - the trim ring has not been installed yet, it's just there to check clearances.

If I didn't know better I'd say you were building an air-hockey table that serves beer.

Seriously though, great stuff. Shall I assume that only three sides are being ventilated because the back side is not getting paneled?

Good idea! How hard is it to work that in, Jester?

Damn! Wish I'd thought of that! Maybe Keezer 2.0

And you are correct - no paneling on the back.

Getting started on my own kegerator. My real work is suffering because of all the ideas I'm finding on the internet. I would say this is one of the coolest designs I've seen and would like to emulate it a little. But I have one question. How difficult is it to get the top on and off to get kegs exchanged? Or is it attached to the lid, and if so, did you have to get bigger hinges? That stone can't be light?

The top is indeed attached to the lid, and it's pretty damn heavy, but the hinges don't seem to have a problem with the extra load. Of course, the springs are no where near strong enough to hold it open, so I have a prop I put in when moving kegs around.

Let me know if you have any other questions, or if you need photos of specific details.

Cheers

And welcome to HBT!!
