Default Our kegerator Build

My Friend and I had brewed a few beers and decided we would really like to keg some beers, so thanks to this forum we decided to build a Kegerator. My friend is a member on here also, username Rich2268. So here is our build thread.

Here are a couple of pictures of the cooler we used, It is a Reddi Wip cooler like what you would see in a grocery store. Worked up really well we can cool down to about 20 degrees with the controls that are built into the cooler/freezer.









Here is the start of the bar top. All of this wood is what we had laying in the garage. The edges are about 3/4"x2 1/2" Oak. The top is 1/4" plywood we had. In the first pic you see me on the right and my dad om the left. My friend is behind the camera in the pictures.







Here is a action shot.


Fitting the last Side.


All glued up.


Sitting in the house drying, It was kind of cold outside yet. You also see the tap top on this picture also.



Putting the end caps of the tap tower together.


Glued

What do you mean by small, in what sence? It is actually not that small, than tower it self is about 4"x6" and about 11" tall. The top cross section is the same size but about 10" long. The bottom of the pour spout is about 12" from the counter top.

I am used to seeing people build larger coffin boxes or putting in one of the stainless towers, your "smaller" tower made of wood is a nice alternative to the many other builds you see on here.

It is Kleer Koat from the uscomposites.com website. It is about the best price resin that we could find. I got 1 gallon or resin and 1 gallon of hardener (1:1 ratio) with some mixing containers and a stirrer for under $100.
