$50 GE found on Craigslist. Honestly don't remember the cubic footage, but it'll hold 8+ cornies.

some scratches and dings. and dirty. when the former owner opened her front door it was like a wall of cats hit me. really strong. so it came to me pretty rough.

after some soap and water and a little judicious application of goo gone, it came out pretty decent.

i'm going with an inner collar of straight 2x4s. the home depot guys cut them to the wrong length, so i've got to do some adjusting there. that's to come this week.

and outer collar will be 1x8 of solid oak. pre-treated oak looks good enough on it's own.

Those are great boards you selected ... my wife just rolls her eyes when I pull out several boards at the store and try to find some that match, but the guy at Menards got it, and he even helped me pull some more out and find boards that looked good together.

Blue and golden brown will look good together.

Crappy lighting in the basement is credited for the blue vibe. The paint is actually black.

Perlicks all around. Decided not to bother messing with something that would just end up irritating me.

I just finished mine this evening. A little 5.5 but four of my pin locks squeezed in there cozy. Drinking one of the two cold drafts I have ready. Looks like it's time to get brewing.
