Finally have the chest freezer to begun the build. Bought the 2x4s a few days ago and now I can begin. Got the inspiration from cruelkix and jetlink1983. Hopefully it comes out as nice.

good luck! I finally got my freezer a few weeks back and will eventually need to venture down this route but I don't think it will happen until sometime early next year as I still need to get my single tier built.

So for now I just have a chest freezer sitting nicely at 34 degrees (modified the internal thermostat) with some picnic taps inside. At least I can have beer on tap even if it doesn't look fancy yet.

Congrats on going with the Coffin design...a bit more work and money, but SO worth it for the finished product!

Tough to make progress with a sick wife and a 1 and 3 year old but I've been able to sneak in an hour here and there.

Still don't know what the finished product will look like since the boss lady keeps changing her mind, but I'll take it at least she's letting me build it.

Little more work. It opens!!! Just need to put a couple more pieces for support. I'll probably add some shelves next
