Ok, so the stone is finally on order for this beast. Should be in about a week from now, and then things should get rolling again. Here are some revised drawings that are correct for the dimensions of the freezer. I did cutaways to show detail for how it's all going to go together.

Ok, so some real progress on the Keezer.

First, strips of ply that will register the top unit on the freezer lid. The hole routed in the front is for the slightly raised handle on the front of the freezer.



On the top side, there is a hole routed for so that the drip tray will be flush with the marble.



Here is the drip tray test fitted.



Next, the marble tiles for the top are cut and placed to make sure I didn't screw anything up.

Here is the back view of the coffin that will hold the taps.



And here is the coffin placed on the top. Also the first part of the surround trim has been installed.



So, after about 8 hours of effort (plus another hour or so trying to find tools around the house!) here is where it is.



Next up will be getting exterior wood on the top, drilling the tap holes, and then staining the wood and caulking the marble.

God damn ,nice job dude! I have a very very similar project in the works right now. A GE 6.9 cu footer on a custom dolly with a 9 1/4" collar and a pass-thru/fan-cooled/insulated draft tower. a heads up - use big wheels especially if you are on carpet, mine are tiny and its a b!tch to move... I'll post some pics of my rig soon...
