OH -- and right next to the wooden legs at my lowes, they have these little 1-2" "toppers" (for lack of a better term) for < $1 each that look like a natural extension of the legs, that already have screws in them. that's what i used for the tops, looks great as well.

Got the material to turn down a couple of tap handles from 6061 T6 Aluminum. after machining I plan to anodize one clear translucent red and the other Blue with a pearl kind of sheen. Both will have mini chalkboards to identify whats on tap. Just drilled the first hole in the keezer last week, when I get the coin I will add the second one later on. I also found a killer deal on a stainless drip catcher tray for 17 bucks on Amazon with free shipping. Best price I have found on stainless goodies yet.
