No problems whatsoever. It's not hard to reach the middle taps at all.

IP - I just might split the lid as you suggest!
How do you know the Argon you buy is food safe? I believe all Co2 in US is food safe but curious if you confirmed on the argon...

Food safe gas is a big myth. If it's good enough for welding, it's good enough to eat. Impurities cause weld defects. In fact, most welding grade gases have to exceed FDA standards in order to be useful. From what I understand, Argon is typically not FDA tested, but that's simply because it's not often used in food applications.

Yuri, one more questions and this might be a stupid questions so I apologize but how do you plan to be able to access the keezer? Will the gray part in the diagram be removable to so you have access to the lid? And how did you run the hose up through the lid into the tap tower? THanks again! Im in the process of building something like this and I those are some of the sticking points I have

I'm going to open the lid, just like any other design out there. I'll keep the bar top light so that it doesn't stress the hinges too badly. I ran the lines through a 3" hole drilled in the lid.

Here's the bar top - 99% done:





It's red oak framing a piece of cheap 3/8" underlayment plywood with Pergo-style flooring filling the center. I used the cheapest Pergo-style flooring that Home Depot sells, and it looks pretty nice, IMHO!

I'm going to run a round over bit around it, then stain and clear the oak while it's installed.

I'm not going to encase the entire freezer in wood, as the original design shows. I move too often to spend time on a furniture project that's likely to get destroyed. I may paint the freezer black, instead.
