Nice!
Curious as to the source for the tap handles...

Thanks for the kind comments!

I am not sure where the tap handles originally came from because I salvaged them from the keezer I bought off craigslist that broke. They are the kind that you can make your own label and put the paper inside the plastic handle (similar to these http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...-C100-4-M.html) but I simply filled them with different grain (chocolate malt, 2 row and flaked wheat).

The ones at the site I linked probably won't work though because they have a solid insert that goes behind the paper and the ones I have don't...

What a nice job you did, very nice work, using this as a model for my own project if I can free up some time this winter, just built a new house and tore down an old house, salvaged a bunch of old pine and douglas fir floors, 100+ years old, grain patterns are amazing, it has been sitting in the barn all wrap up, I know what it is going to be used for now!!! =) Will post some pics when done, thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks! I am really happy with the way the reclaimed wood turned out and it contrasts well with the new material.

Please make sure to post when you end up building yours, i'd be interested to check it out. Good luck!

This came out really nice. I guess the whole top tilts up to access the interior. Does that work out well?

Thanks! It opens the same way a chest freezer would and I have a board that I use to prop it open when I need to change out kegs or adjust my CO2. I used vinyl tiles instead of stone to keep the weight of the lid down and it is still pretty heavy. It is a little tight inside but it works fine...

If I were doing it over again I would go with a bigger chest freezer that would allow me to move around inside a little easier and possibly expand.

That is nice. My favorite so far. The dark stain on the wood and the tap handles are a thing of beauty.

You mind posting a picture with the top open? I intend on trying to build something similar in the future and I'm not sure I'm properly visualizing how it is attached/opens.

I love the stain with the tile/tap handles. It looks great!
