So I got sick of looking at this dumb white box in my apartment and was tired needing to lift the lid everytime I wanted some homebrew. I always had the intention of adding a collar and taps... but I wanted so something a little different. So I decided to build a whole new top out of old reclaimed CVG lumber. So I had my idea... not I just needed to build it.

Here is the before shot of my keezer and the wood.



Wood Before.





Once I started cutting the wood up I was able to see the beautiful old grain within!



So Unfortunately after that first day I forgot to take photos... I wanted to get done and have a real usable keezer.

Please see next post....

so, like I said before... I never remember to actually take a photo while I was building. Now I have the top assembled and I am working on 'finishing' it.



I was also sick of the white box. So I primed it and cover with Chalkboard paint.



Insulated it.

Finished, with a tap handle my buddy made me from a old shovel handle and some rope... pretty badass.





Bourbon Vanilla Porter, Maple Rye PA, and a Rye IPA on tap!

Hope you all like it!

Very nice design and also excellent woodwork! Did you use a plane on the boards or what? Proof that there are alternatives to mitered joints that can look as good or even better as you have shown.

Thanks. I cut everything down with a table saw, then glued all the strips together, then ran the top through a planner. I originally planned to miter the joints but then decided against it... I am glad I did because I love the look of the side.
