So went with the GF to Border's today and sitting outside was this big wood cabinet/bar/desk thingy with a "free" sign on it. It's made of some sort of hard wood and weighs about 300lbs.

When I saw it, it just screamed "bar" it's like 3/4 of a bar I said to myself.

So after some back breaking labor we got it in the truck and into the apt.

Here's some pics (excuse the washcloths under the corners of it I used them to slide it once we got it in)

It's 55"w x 30"d x 40"h

If I gutted it I think I could fit a freezer in there 49"w x 28"d x 33"h though I could get more height out of it if I get the inside floor out to.

What do you guys think? Any ideas?

Has excellent potential. I see a couple cold kegs under, a couple taps on top, nice glassware and your in business.

I agree with your statement about gutting it and installing a keezer or mini-fridge inside of it.

Keezer or fermentation chamber. At least that's what I'd do. Nice score.

I'll vote for a keezer. Put a bottom with casters on it, build a skirt, rip the stuff out of the middle and slide the chest freezer in there!

I think you'll probably have to do the legwork for that one my friend! There's no standard measurements between manufacturers, just check Craigslist in your area and get the measurements.
