Our wood was chosen based upon character! It watches you!
Next we drilled Tap Holes using a 1" hole saw:
Then we test fitted the Perlicks:
Now that they fit we can install the lights and do the wiring. We installed 2 rope lights, a blue light and an orange light. We will attach them to a Dimmer in a later step.
First we fed them through a (previously cut) rectangle hole from inside the tap box. We then wired them to each other using our wire kit from circuits 1!
Here they are with a test light:
Next we embedded T-Nuts into the Lid. 4 from the bottom side so the tap box can anchor to them and 6 from the top side so that the freezer lid can anchor to them.
Here is a close up of one:
Here is another shot, the 6 on top are to anchor to the freezer. There are 4 which you can't see embedded on the bottom for the tap box to anchor to.
Next we removed the lid from the freezer and removed the insulation from the lid. Then jigged out 2 holes in the lid and applied duck tape:
Then we applied liquid nails to the freezer lid and clamped and bolted the plywood top to it.
Then we put the insulation back into the lid and cut the holes through the insulation and plastic liner.
The next step was freezer assembly. First the freezer went onto the dolly and then we attached the lid back to the freezer.
