EasyE, what size casters did you go with? If a caster is rated at 125 lb load, does using four mean the total load is 500 lbs?

I went with the 6 inch heavy duty casters, rated at 600 lbs. They do the trick very well.

Where did you get the black aluminum? I live in the same general area and have been looking for that color but have been unsuccessful. What company did you purchase it from? I have found siding in different colors but nothing shorter than a 50ft roll, which is way to much. Thanks.

I couldn't find the black aluminum either, but I found some "L" shaped vinyl in the Lowe's vinyl siding area - It's like an accessory for something, not the actual siding - that and a can of 'plastic' paint (black) and a sharp knife... but I covered mine in oak, so the top isn't smooth and black like EasyE's

(old photo, just after completion, May 2011. Those corneys are full now!)

The black aluminum was from Bridgewater Lumber. Saline, MI. Post pics of your keezer here when you finish. All the best as you near completion.

What's in that jug?

Also, how do you like the black & tan turtle? I was debating one of those vs. a standard Guinness spoon.

That looks really nice. Could you show how you have the shanks coming through the vinyl? Did you do a gasket there or anything?

That black vinyl looks tight! Nice wood grain too.
