MD-Dave--- I got the corbels from Osborne wood products in Georgia. Osbornewood.com You can find just about any corbel you want online. Also last week the whole basement flooded and everything is destroyed except the bar!!!! the concrete floor that the bar is sitting on thankfully is a little higher than the rest of the basement floor. I got amazingly lucky. But now I have to install new drywall, ceiling carpet etc... I plan on working this weekend and I will post pictures.

Oh my god! I am do sorry to hear that. The beer gods seemed to be watching over the bar though. At least that is good. And thanks for the info on the corbels. I will look at them. I have some metal brackets holding it up right now.

Amazing build! Absolutely gorgeous! One question, how did you run your beer lines out of the chest freezer into your tower?

HomeBrewerB,

I build my bar around the chest freezer. The part top over the freezer had to be freestanding and could not connect with the bar because of the hinge. To do this I simply took the guts out of the top of the freezer, installed a custom fit piece of plywood on the inside of the chest freezer lid. Then I traced a 3/4" plywood on the top (outside) of the chest freezer, and then screwed them together. So my layers from bottom to top are like this... Insulation, 3/4" plywood, thin metal chest freezer, 3/4" plywood, another 3/4" plywood 3/8" plywood, 3/4" finished bar top red oak plywood.

Once that was done I simply took a hole saw and drilled through all the layers. The beer lines simply come up threw the hole and each beer line runs through it own copper pipe in an effort to keep the lines cool to prevent foaming...

Wow! Sorry for the confusion but for the last part where you say you drill through all the layers, are you talkin about the metal chest freezer top too down into the freezer

Yes I drill though all the layers including the metal chest freezer lid that is about as thin as a piece of paper. no problems. I previously took out the insulation and plastic cover in the chest freezer.
