Yes, home depot. I just wanted to do something a bit different. I think my favorite part might be the digital frame.

more progress, construction will be finished tomorrow. I grouted yesterday and cleaned the tiles today, looks great. Sanding and stain is next, then wiring and insulation of the beer lines.

Construction finished. Waiting on my taps. Sanded this afternoon and will be staining tomorrow. Changed my mind on the grey stain, going a dark mahogany.

Nice taps, especially the Boulevard one. My home town brewery.

Quick question, when opened is there extra support for the lid? Seems like it could be a bit top heavy.

Love it though! Looks fanatic!

thanks surfer dude, yes it its heavy. Thus far i have had help holding it open or i pulled out a drawer on my toolbox and rolled it over to hold to hold it. The hinges, I assume, cant hold the weight on their own...

Love Boulevard, we cant get it here and I love the Double-Wide IPA. We were recently in OKC and I purchased all of the smokestack series.
