Nice work HBRunner! What does the inside of your tower box look like?

I didn't have one with me when I took this series of pictures, but it still made me happy. The beer tastes phenominal as well.

Great idea. I need a tripod and I'll have myself a new facebook picture

Bought this off craigslist for $25. It was white and came with a single tower, co2 tanks, all the lines and regulator and theremostat. So it was an incedible deal. My buddies say I am a Gypsy because I always find great deals. Last week I swapped out the single tower for a dual that came with a stainless steel drip tray for $25. I gave the drip tray to my buddy Dave at the LHBS for $25 credit. So I look at it like I got a dual for free. I painted it red last week too, its now called the keg-a-razor. The wife got me a custom carved tap handle, we both are Arkansas alumni. The custom tap handle she had a guy off www.etsy.com custom make it.

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.

It's not much, but it does the job.

Free fridge, scrubbed to hell, primered the body, stone flecked the door. The main tap runs soda water out of the pinlock keg (its what will fit under the cooling element) and picnic taps off the others. I want to install a 3 tap manifold and a beer gas setup (the wifey likes the stouts) and route the tank outside, but for now this works...





I got hosed and woke up with a bear head as my snuggle bunny one morning... apparently I stole it from a bar we were at... He now guards the kegerator from heavy handed "friends"

Not my proudest moment, but up there none the less...

lol that sounds like something one of my buddies would have done in college. I cant remember how much crap he had in his room from random nights of drinking.

I love the look of the fridge too! Nice work

I posted the chest freezer kegerator. but i didn't post the one I bought at Home depot for 150$ new ..



works well once I put the Perlick faucet on ,one thing I will not be filling up the 5 lb tank again. It costs almost as much as the 20lb tank.

You bought that at Home Depot?

Fishkill or Poughkeepsie?
