How are you venting the keezer? In the early posts you mentioned a vent on the service side of the bar but I don't see anything obvious in the pics.

Good catch. As of right now ... I'm not. But again, I'm in the basement, and the keezer is sitting directly on the concrete. Aurora, CO ground temperature rarely breaks 60 degrees. I'll let you know how it goes. I'm still contemplating adding fans.

Bar Stools came in. I have 3 more to put together.

Just the lights.

Thanks! Originally, I just had the light under the taps and then I was like.... NAH! I need them for the whole thing! So i ripped the original switch out and swapped for a higher amp one and wired up the front lights as well. I'm glad I did.

Thanks to you as well! I'll admit, before i used the wire brush on it, the copper was disappointing. I almost ripped it out.... the wire brushing really saved it as it covered up some of the faults in the copper. Some were mine mistakes and some were there when the copper arrived.

Looks AWESOME! With the copper top I think you need a darker stain and some green accents somewhere...
