As Clint Eastwood wold say; "Mans Got to know his limits", for me I will be able to reach out or extend an arm 24" to pull a tap handle when there is a bier handy. The other plan is the one by Jester with the coffin box running the same length as the keezer with it against the wall. Many options before the final build allows time to think it out.

Phase one has begun: Ranco control and a picnic tap.



I'm not sure when I'll get to start working on the more aesthetic aspects, but I haven't forgotten about the project!

Yuri, I think you may not like the taps to the side after using this for a while, but to each his own. What if you turned it outboard, but still kept it to the end of the counter? Alternatively, you could go with one of those mushroom style "roundabout" taps.....it'd still give you access from all angles....plus you could shine 'er up real pretty...

This is the first time I've come across this thread, and I have to say the keezer-as-a-bar concept is brilliant. Throw a half dozen bar stools around it and you're in business. This is giving me ideas...
