Today -----

12th coat of polyurethane on lid --- cut, stained and installed lower cedar board which holds drip tray. Cannot screw into freezer directly, so I thought this would be the best way to go....

More next weekend

Measurements are of overall size of this monster

Why don't you just use a steel plate to extend the drip tray to the collar? Then add a bit of liquid nails to seal the thing in place. The dayglo straps don't look good. You can get metal plates painted appliance white at home depot (they sell them for going on the wall between stove and microwave).

BTW, love the huge freezer. I'm in the market for a freezer for my kegs.

there's a product by envirotex called pour on finish.... might be more what you're looking for. it can be built up to something like 1/2 inch in one coat
they do advise using a torch to release bubbles in that coat, but it's pretty awesome.
crystal clear, UV resistant, and since it's all one coat, it levels like glass (assuming you use the torch to get the bubbles out, that is...)

might be a little late for this project, but i'm sure there's a bar build coming up here.

I'll check on that and really appreciate the heads up. I want to get enough thickness so that years down the road it can be sanded and resealed ---

The orange is just temporary ---- first time with liquid nails didn't work so good -- so tried something different and clamps come off in the morning.

BTW -- Pumpkin Ale which was tapped today was a big hit --- I was hoping it was my first out of the new dispenser, but it was not meant to be.....

I think I have a good idea what might be on the lid. I have a buddy who did what I am thinking and it was pretty awesome. Whether it is the same or not can't wait to see it!

Well as I guessed early on Its obviously either the Miami Dolphins or Hurricanes. There was a clue early, and the last set of pictures confirms it.

I ordered a 32 oz kit last night - thanks! If it arrives this week I'll plan on Saturday/Sunday to finish the top.

Brewers are funny people = Yesterday I got so busy " messing " I totally forgot to keg my first hefeweizen which has been fermenting since 10/29. One more day on the yeast bed.......
