I flush mounted it by routering out the base plywood and adding tile around it. It is only 24" but it is all stainless. You can go 36" but the insert is plastic i think.

Mine can be seen here:

Do you have to move the keezer to open the lid? How do you keep the coffin from hitting the wall? I'm trying to decide if I want to go with a coffin build or just a simple collar and that is one of my concerns.

yeah you have to pull the keezer out from the wall to open the lid. Fully loaded it can be a bit difficult by yourself (wishing I went with ball bearing casters), but I only have to move it maybe a foot and 1/2 away from the wall. You could build the lid such that the coffin was more centered on the lid instead of pushed back. I like having the extra counter space.

Yeah I thought about casters too. I may do that either way I go. I got a good deal on a 12.8 cf chest so when that is full moving won't be an option. Your wood work looks great, thanks for the post.

Posting up a better picture since the last couple were kind of blurry and dark.

I believe I have this correct.... you removed the lid so you do not have to route your lines through the lid?

Currently I have a freezer that will fit four plus corny kegs, four kegs, four taps (barb and spigot) a four way Co2 splitter, a Co2 tank and all my lines...and a four spigot tower. The freezer is top load.

I have seen this style keezer and another style keezer that just puts a foot extension between base and lid with spigots in the extension.

what should I do? any suggestions? I really want to make this a SIMPLE project that I can improve upon later.

I guess I just cut a hole in the lid of my freezer to feed my supply lines through it?

Please advise....I hate making waste.

The simplest thing would be to make a collar for your chest freezer. No need to cut into the lid then, and you can always upgrade to a coffin keezer later. Do some more searching on here. There are literally hundreds of builds in the DIY section.

Sweet build! As I was looking though the build I noticed you were from Frederick! I grew up in Frederick! I hope when I get around to building a kegger it turns out this good. Great build.

For your dolly, the simple 4 2x6's with a piece of plywood, did that hold the weight of everything needed? I have a 15 cu ft freezer and have seen some beefed up dolly's with several 2x4's running support and to as simple as yours. I was looking at running two 2x4's horizontally as an upper and lower, and several 2x4's running vertically, but wasn't sure if that was overkill?
