Working on my keezer project for fathers day. Started with a magic chef 10 cu ft freezer. Collar is 1x6 poplar. I decided to get rid of the lid altogether, laid plywood, backer board, and tile. Still need to grout and add trim around the edged of the lid. The lid is f#*%in heavy now, so I added a handle.

Inside I have 2 cornys, a Kegcowboy 2 keg kit, and a computer fan to circulate the air.

I used the thermostat adjustment method detailed in the DIY thread and its sitting at 40F.

Looking good. Since you are storing bottles inside, you need a bottle opener mounted to the collar!!

Good call on the opener! I'll put that on the list.

Finished the trim and grout!

All wrapped up in its new home....it passed the "looks good enough to come upstairs test".

Think I might leave the collar natural. It matches the wood in our wine cooler.

Get some Perlicks on that baby. The finish work is far too pretty for those faucets! Regardless, it looks great.

When you say you are going to leave it natural, do you mean use a natural stain, or just not stain? I used a natural stain on my shelving I built and it kept the integrity of the color very well.

Probably just a natural stain. Maybe something just to get the grain to pop a bit, but I like the light color of the wood.

Perlicks, meh, unless I have issues with these taps sticking badly they're fine for me. No one I drink with is going to know the difference, just you guys on HBT. lol
