So after 4 days of non stop work on my collar I go to put it on and the son of a bitch is too big. I got the wood cut at Home Depot. I was asking him questions about the cuts he was making and he just looked at me and said, "I've been doing this long enough, I know what I'm doing."
I haven't been this mad in a very long time. My girlfriend was a little scared.
What he ended up doing was not accounting for the width of one board, thus making the collar to wide from from to back.
There's only two ways I can think of to fix this. One, which is my last resort, is to take it back apart, hack off the extra and put it back together. Or I could remove the hinges from the freezer bottom and put in some sort of spacer to account for the extra.
I just kegged that IPA in the background since I thought
had room in the freezer now. I have been working on this since Thursday night.
HBT, I need you now more than ever.
