Default Bar-In-A-Closet

I wanted to post the write-up of my bar build on here but I don't feel like spreading it out into 4-picture posts so here's the blog link.

http://bar-in-a-closet.blogspot.com/...bar-build.html

Let me know what you guys think!

Looks nice. One question though.....Does the freezer run hot? Just seems like there is no ventalation for the compressor.

Definitely was my first and number one concern. There's a 1/2" gap all around and a 1" gap in the back. This freezer has historically not had to run much to stay at 38 F so I went for it and put my Ranco probe down there for a while. Didn't get above 80 so I think I'm ok. It's hot up here in Mass right now, too
