Thanks, it's a birch cabinet carcass w/ angled floor (a couple degrees), and draintray in front. It's hidden by a mahogany faceframe.
Mahogany panel door (inlay is epoxy/graphite). It's sort of Arts-n-Crafts-ish. varnished.
black painted styrofoam friction-fit inside.
Draft tower screws onto an oiled cherry base, slides into a rabbet in the bar-style counter.
I wish i knew what wood THAT was, its super heavy, maybe african-something ...?
(It comes apart for roadtrips. Original plan was for the tower to fit inside the cab for travel, that however has been nullified by the styrofoam.
Turned the handle on my lathe. It had an open, double helix spiral on top (till I dropped it.)
The little copper post cap on top is/will/might/maybe/ going to have some plexiglass under it and a tap light. I want to be able to touch the top, and turn on a pouring light (for while a movie is playing).
No drip tray yet, I need some design inspiration. Tower is too tall, I made it to fit growlers under it -(duh, overengineering) will soon be replaced by a 4-sided, raised-panel tower.
It comes with a highly sophisticated, remote refrigeration unit. (Ya want a cold one? swap out a keg from the basement.)
haven't made a belgian since carving this, so Brother Tap hasn't been used yet.
