alright, since i'm having to write my wife's paper's for school i'm making her buy me a freezer to make a keezer out of. plan on getting the ge 7.0' model. i've decided i want to do something nice with a coffin or wooden pass through system on top.
after browsing the last several days, i found firefly765's build
where he used some hardwood flooring to build the encasement for the freezer. well, i have about 8 boxes of leftover laminate wood flooring (not real/engineered wood) that i could use. i have also read that 1/4" plyboard can be glued directly to the freezer without overheating issues. so my question to some of you experts is do you think that 5/16" laminate flooring would have a similar r-value as oak plyboard? i've searched the interwebs but haven't really come up with anything definitive. the closest i found was for mdf/plastic laminate (maybe the same thing) that has a r-value of 1.0/inch, or ~0.3 for 5/16". if so, that's actually less than plyboard at 1.1/inch.
