Default Keezer collar question

Are the wood collars that I frequently see on keezers, effective at keeping in the cool temps, or would it be a good idea to better insulate the inside of the collar?

The answer to all is: something (hopefully good).

2x's are great insulators.

Remember, a chest freezer holds the cold air in the bottom of the box anyway, so it's not like you have cold air trying to push its way out through the collar.

Oh yeah, that is a good point. Duh.

Thanks BM.
