Ok so the kegerator is moved over to the new house, and was loaded up with some apfelwein and my traditional irish stout(they went quick). Just a little bit of trim to do around the edge still but its about 90% finished.



Now for project #2. we built this bar in the family room but we want to put a single tap out the top for partys. So that will be next

I bought some of the tap handle inserts for making your own tower handles and this is what I came up with.

The first one is all different caps, tacked on to a cut down old french pastry pin.
The second one is from a puck from a small hockey team up in welland, Ont

Any problems with the tiles on the side of the freezer due to the heat the freezer gives off when it runs?

I only have had one tile pop off and that one was slightly buckled when I put it on. They just shouldnt have any pressure on them at the joints. The one that has been popping off was the one that was covering the drain plug on the bottom. My cut was slightly off so to get it to fit I literally held the tile in place for 2 hours after I glued it. Guess I should of held on longer or just cut it right the first time

Remember kids, Measure twice, cut once!!

And always cut towards yourself. Or is that supposed to be away?

This is the other kegerator I finished a few months ago. Its a super old wine cooler from an Olive Garden. It was in the kitchen, so its pretty banged up. I sanded the whole thing down with 200 grit and removed all the spot rust and enamel.
The gasket around the door isnt great so im looking for a replacement but cant seem to find one at all. The cooler runs great when I put duct tape around the door so the cold air doesnt escape. Its very quite though which is nice.
Eventual plan is to have this up in the apartment. The SWMBO is ok with this smaller on upstairs in the dining room but wont put up with my original one up there.

So I started with sanding down the whole thing till it was down to a matte finish. Wiped it down and cleaned it out and did a test run on it with my thermostat controller. Once it gets down to 36dF it only kicks on every 65 minutes for 4 minutes. Not as efficient as my chest freezer kegerator but it will do.
The inside can fit 2 cornies and a 10# CO2 tank without a problem and you can see everything from outside which is kind of cool I think.
After sanding down the top I taped off all but an inch or so border and applied 3 coats of chaulk board paint to the top. Let it dry then drilled the hole or the tower. Its the tower off my first kegerator that is not in action right now and has been confined to the basement.
Outside of the kegerator, everywhere but the top was painted with a high gloss gray paint. I think I still want to put some back lighting into the roof of the kegerator just to highlight all the stuff inside



Yes i know the pictures are horrible but sorry, I have an Iphone 3.
