The mitered collar didn't work out. I would imagine it was a combo of my first attempt at mitering and my first use of Liquid Nails.
Oh well, read on and see the alternative I used. Leaving this in though as it is technically accurate I just sucked at it, lol.


Spackled the corners since they had some gaps. Not sure if I got enough in there though... might have to redo it after I sand things down.



It ended up fitting perfect, which was unexpected, lol. I think it'll turn out great once it is cleaned up, painted and the hardware is mounted.



A lot more room inside the lid than I expected too. Should still be more than enough room once I add the insulation.

Looking good Tom
Tip for the future. You can use the speed square you have to help make straight cuts with the saw. Works really well on smaller lumber like you are using.

Yeah I actually did that for the straight cuts but with the saw at an angle it was hitting either the sliding guard or the body of the saw. Even then it turned out much better than I expected, heh. I'm not super handy but I try to make up for that by researching and taking it slow.

OK moved all the pictures to the members gallery instead of my album... I was running out of room and the gallery is unlimited. Plus you can actually find the pictures outside this thread now, lol.

OK after a whole day of waiting for glue to dry it feels good to get something done though after I sand it will be waiting for stuff to dry again but oh well.

Being as error prone as I am I took the philosophy of "measure twenty times and drill once", lol. There are smaller holes on the right but you can't really see them in the picture.




I wanted to see how it all lined up before moving on to finish work so I put it all together and set it up on the freezer.





Oh and all the hardware is ready to go... I just need the collar done.

Keep the pics coming! I just got my GE 7.0 delivered today, so this thread was a timely discovery. It'll probably be at least another couple months before I can do the conversion, since I promised my gf we could use the freezer to try and get rid of the dreaded India flour moths first. Still, it'll be good to see how someone else does it before I begin.

Ok, I gotta ask, what the story with the weird looking tap handles.
The two outside ones.

They are empty now. They are customizable... you just make a graphic and print it then cut it out and insert it into the tap handle.

Like this...


That is just a quick graphic I made out of curiosity. I would probably make one for each specific beer and keep them handy for swapping out when I switched kegs.
