So I am finally getting around to posting the pictures from last weekend. Turned out pretty good, fits 6 kegs and looks good enough that the SWMBO allows it in the kitchen!

Started off with some wood and my trusty circular saw. Compound miter saw would have been better, but this did the trick.



Here is one after hacking the wood into pieces, and placing them together to see what it will look like.



After a little bit of sanding and some stain.



Out in the heat, applied a couple coats of poly.



First placement for a dry fit.



Another view, so you can see the inside.



View with the lid.



Inside after letting the liquid nails dry on the lid.



Close up look at those perfect new Perlick faucets, and bottle opener.

Looks great. I wish I had the room for something like that in my small house.

Very nice!

Is that Minwax Bombay Mahogany stain?

My freezer is black...I think it'd look sharp with a collar that color.

Yeah, the SWMBO wants me to paint it black.. I am sure it would look very good. The stain we used was Cabot Red Chestnut. We tested it on some wood and put it on kinda heavy for the darker color.

The poly we used was Cabots Satin Polyurethane. Then she went over it with some Old English oil after I was done to clean it up a bit.

I am probably going weld up a base with some wheels and a spot to hold the tank on the side. When I do that, I may look at painting it black =)

Looks really nice; my little chest freezer appears to be about the same size as that.

Looks really nice, love the way the dark stain brings out the grain pattern.

What kind of freezer did that start as?

Brand new 7.2cu Magic Chef from Home Depot, and I agree.. I like the way the grain stands out!

Awesome job. That is the same freezer that I got. How did you attach the collar to the lid?
