Next I started getting the parts together to split my dual manifold to feed four kegs. The 7.7cuft freezer will only hold four cornies with a co2 bottle. I next milled the southern yellow pine lumber into boards that will eventually become the "keezer collar".

I enjoyed a Red Hook ESB clone here before forming the 2" thick collar.

I'm too anal to just screw the boards together, so I had to countersink and plug the holes on the collar.

I revisited my Festool saw again to size the 1/2" plywood top. Then enjoyed another RH ESB clone, before moving on to sizing the apron and lid top from the mahogany boards.

With the apron and top lumber milled up, I layout the plywood and attach it to the 2" thick by 3" tall collar.

The best part is that your keezer will smell of rich mahogany.
Perhaps some leather books to go with it...

After some quick 45 miters and some pocket screws on the bottom the top is coming together.

Looking more like a keezer than a pile of boards at this point.
