The beer lines will be routed thru the 2" PVC pipes. 2 lines in each tube.

Then take it to a local countertop or tile place, have them make you a piece from marble/tile cutting the holes in it etc. to match the wooden piece. Replacing the wooden piece with marble/tile would make cleanup even quicker/less apt to damage, vs the wood piece.

Again, very nice. My kegerator is a moldy fridge out in my garage!
I like that idea. I am ready to get this keezer running soon. Maybe version 2.0 will do this. I am going to cut tiles to be placed on top of the upper coffin. They will be flush with the edge of the coffin lip.
Thanks for the input.

At first I thought "Boy, another 'look I built a collar on a freezer' thread...ho hum" but you really did some extra stuff here that makes it stand out. The pine trim, cool! The raised taps, super nice.

Well done, this is a slick looking unit that I bet any swmbo would allow in the living room!
I thought I posted this in the wrong forum. All I heard was crickets. I appreciate the support.
My wife is on board with ditching the entire dining room, and installing a sports pub. I just have to find a place to put all of my beer steins, that are stored in the China cabinet, and get rid of the Ivy wallpaper.

Sorry I meant how do u route them out of the closed keezer? Did u drill thru the collar or thru the top? Im just curious how big u made the holes. I'd like to eventually do the same but would like to keep the loss of the cold air to a minimum

The DD214 is the form you get when you leave the military, HD/Lowe's have programs that give veterans/retired/disabled and their families a discount. Other veterans can get the discount on certain holidays.

I've followed the post and you're either too humble with the "barely know woodworking" comments, or you're an incredibly fast learner. This was phenomenal! I've saved the link in my 'Maybe Someday" file... Thanks for the inspriation.
