Well, my draft box is ALMOST finished. At least it is pouring beer! It needs to be oiled and sealed and all those finishing touches, but I am pouring beer!

Instead of a drip tray, I made a drip box that you can see in the picture. I think it will work great!

That's REALLY cool! Do you load it from the top? Seems like it might be a tad heavy

I do load it from the top, but I built a new top that is hinged right in front of the draft unit. It works great.

Oh man is that nice.....

Does the drip tray just slide over to the one you are pouring, or is there something else magical to that?

That thing looks so cool it ain't even funny!

The tray is just moved around, like a big coaster with a drip tray attached. I just dump it in the sink, rinse it out and off we go!

What's the cylindrical thing in the center? Is that "Big Money J.C."?

Is there a reason you didn't cut they beer engine slots out of slate? By the way, classy.

Ok. I see it now - nice work!

What did you use for the black on the freezer? I may end up doing a lesser version of that when I finish my basement bar
