Default Still another Keezer build

Hey y'all. I finally got around to starting the build for my keezer. I have been planning it for months. Like some of the others around here I'm going to be make it more like a bar. I have a few weeks of work to do, but I'm happy that I finally got it going. It's just kinda hard to work on with a 2 year old in the house! I'll keep everyone posted. Thank you for all the inspiration and motivation!

Sweet! I totally understand about the two-year old, mine is a little over one year, so not quite as mobile as yours. I can only imagine the difficulty in accomplishing even the most trivial tasks!

Keep at it!

Cheers!

Default And Some More









Carpentry has never been one of my best skills, but I do really enjoy making something from nothing. I think that is what drew me to home brewing. That and my love of not just beer, but ALL beer.

I have most of this keezer built. I need to do some sanding and trimming (to hide my terrible job of measuring and cutting in a straight line). Lines still need to be run and I still need to stain and paint. I feel like I'm in the home stretch, but I still have a lot of work to do. Let me know if you have any questions! I'll keep the post going! Thanks!

Loving the pics. Any plans for laminating the tabletop or something along those lines?

I've saved about 350 different bottle caps that I'm going to lay on the bar top and cover with Kleer Kote epoxy. I let the wife pick out the stain color and trim design so we picked all that up yesterday. I just went around and filled everything with wood filler. I'm going to try to get the trim all measured and cut today.

Here is a picture of most of my caps. I've added quite a few to this collection since.

The bottle caps are cool, but in my honest opinion, a little over-done and frat-boy-esque. I'm really digging the whole design, but think that some nice tile would look better

I appreciate the tip. I kind of agree about the caps. I just haven't been able to talk myself out of it. I'll let the wife decide I guess. It's going in her living room! I'd leave it plywood colored if it were up to me. Haha! Thanks again!

Oh I kinda like the beercaps. I had some friends (back in college...yes they were in a frat) who made a beer-cap table. It was neat then and that hasn't changed for me at least. You're gonna get some of these beer snobs calling foul on the Bud Light and Miller 64, though. Good luck with the rest of the build, looks great so far.
