Default Beer tower on Keezer

Decided to turn my keezer (7cu foot) into a kegerator. Going to put a Corian top on it and mount a three tap tower. What is the best way to drill the hole in the top of the freezer?

Also any issues keeping the tower/beer lines cold?

Thanks
Rick

Use a 3 inch holesaw and use a computer fan to push cool air into the tower.

Thanks. Did a double posting when I realized the DIY section might be more appropriate.

Drill through what? The freezer lid or the corian? For my two tap keezer tower, I ditched the original freezer lid and built a new lid, insulated it & added weatherstripping, and tiled the top. I have a computer fan in there, but for only moving air in the keezer itself -- I don't have it aimed up the tower. FWIW, I've never had an issue with foaming on the first pour and there is probably only an ounce or so of beer in the lines in the tower.

Way less. If it's 3/16" ID tubing, it holds roughly 1/6th ounce per foot...

Cheers!
