First off thanks to Jester and many others for ideas & help during my project.

I started off with a Frigidaire 7.2 Cu ft freezer (I think like $188 @ Brandsmart) & installed a 6" (5.5" w/ 2X6 lumber) collar.




Attached the top of 5/8" plywood with liq nails & 4 bolts through the lid. Hit it with a antifracture membrane & mesh (yellow). I figure this may prevent any sagging in overhang.


Built the skin w/ 2X4 metal studs & a couple wood ones. (I'm no expert carpenter to say the least)


Attached cherry hard wood flooring to skin with liq nails.

Looks great. I'm planning on making my own keezer similar to Jester's model as well. Are you planning on ventilating the sides like he did? Keep sending in the pics.

I'm mounting a fan in the bottom. No duct work or anything. I have a lot of space (2X4 framing) between the freezer & my skin so i don't think it's really that necessary. But I bought the fan & I'm doing it just in case.

What kind of fan? Where did you get it?

Its a computer type fan. I'll post the website. The guys there were very helpful. I a'so got a fan to vent the draftbox & accent lighting from there too. I'll post pics of that later. As far as wiring you just cut a 12V DC converter (old cell charger) & splice the wires to the red & black of the fan. Ignore the yellow(RPM). I'm no expert there either just read how to do on this forum.

Here are some pics with the draftbox installed & granite tile down. I'm now insulating the draft box & dialing in my electrical connections.

I love the way the granite looks! I too am planning a four faucet keezer and can only hope it looks this cool. What did you use to insulate the box?
