Reclaimed Lumber Keezer Top and Keezer Build - PICS!
So I got sick of looking at this dumb white box in my apartment and was tired needing to lift the lid everytime I wanted some homebrew. I always had the intention of adding a collar and taps... but I wanted so something a little different. So I decided to build a whole new top out of old reclaimed CVG lumber. So I had my idea... not I just needed to build it.
Here is the before shot of my keezer and the wood.
Once I started cutting the wood up I was able to see the beautiful old grain within!
So Unfortunately after that first day I forgot to take photos... I wanted to get done and have a real usable keezer.
Very nice design and also excellent woodwork! Did you use a plane on the boards or what? Proof that there are alternatives to mitered joints that can look as good or even better as you have shown.
Thanks. I cut everything down with a table saw, then glued all the strips together, then ran the top through a planner. I originally planned to miter the joints but then decided against it... I am glad I did because I love the look of the side.
