Well I have just gotten started in the homebrew hobby. In fact my first batch of beer is not even finished yet, it is an amber ale that is currently in the secondary. But I can tell you I already have the bug. When I first started reading the forums, I spent to days reading the "show us your kegerator" thread". As soon as I started reading the thread I knew that I wanted to build one too. I read each post, bookmarking ones that I found interesting. The I came to the holy grail of keezers: Jester's magnificint build. It can be seen here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/keezer-project-31221/index13.html#post710605
. I just knew this is what I wanted to build. I spent the next day reading his build thread.
I then PM'd Jester. He was nice enough to send me the sketch up files. I can not give him enough credit, and hope he feels honored that I have cloned/copied his design. Now obviously his is a different size freezer, and I had to design mine with that in mind.
In the past I have dabbled in woodworking, and had a small shop at our old house. But once we moved 4+ years ago, I never got around to setting it back up again. This gave me an excuse to dust of some of the tools, and set them up in the garage, as a temporary workshop.
What follows is my chronicle of my build. It will be in somewhat in real time, so it may take me a couple months to finish. I am looking forward to sharing with you all, and getting ongoing opinions and advice. I can only hope it turns out half as nice as Jester's, and I hope my beer turns out good too!
More posts and pic's to follow soon.......
