Here are the pictures of my Holiday 5 cu feet keezer that I just finished (Model #: LCM050LC).

I used 1x8 pine for the collar, got rid of the original lid and made one with 3 pieces of wood + hinges. I did not have to cut anything (home depot guys did it for me). My wood crafting is not really good, but the insulation I added made a good job at keeping this thing air tight.

I did not know what to choose between having hinges for the lid or for the full collar, so I did both. Since I was at it, the front panel is also on hinges and can be opened. The door is a bit heavy for the hinges with the shanks and the drip tray, but it holds fine. I won't need to open it that often anyway.

To paint the freezer, I used rustoleum "painter's touch" paint, in colonial red. For the collar, I used wood finish that I used for the outside table. It's a teak finish. I must say that I am very happy with the final look of it.

For the inside, everything comes from kegconnection and has been working great. No leaks, no mess. I just regret that I did not ask to have smaller shanks. The only thing I did not get from them is the drip tray - it comes from kegcowboy.

I am able to fit 3 ball lock cornies plus the CO2 tank inside. If I need 4, it is possible, but I will have to take the CO2 out.

I still need to add 3 pieces of pine at the bottom to cover the home made dolly, and paint them with the same finish I used for the top.

I can now enjoy fresh tap beer in the comfort of my home

You still have some time. Once you have your design (you have so many great ideas here on HBT), it goes quickly to make.

Thx!

I would love to get the 5 holiday instead of the 7, but I'm dead set on 4 kegs. How hard would it be to run the gas line from the outside in?
