I'm pretty sure Bobby used a router to round off the edges...

Okay. That makes more sense. I thought that it sounded a little strange. I think I heard "so I applied a quarter round ..." thinking it was "applied". When in reality it was applying a 1/4 round router bit to the joint and edges.

DUH...

Yeah, 1/4" roundover on the corners and 1/8" on the edges just to keep them from being sharp to the touch. You could pull off the same thing with sand paper wrapped around a block of wood. I just like my toys.

Hey Bobby, excellent job on both the kegerator and the videos. I like how you talked about a step, then showed the finished step, without showing things like cutting the inner plastic lid, stapling the seal etc...

I've got the kegger complete and I'm just waiting for some time to edit down the video. I'll tell ya, plumbing for 5 kegs is a PIA and time consuming. I currently only have 4 kegs filled with beer. The 5th is half filled with sanitizer. I figured I'd leave it in there, pressurized so I can swap the beerlines over for a quick rinse now and then.
