Soooo I finally finished my setup. I stole an idea from another member for the tap handles. i have always loved Gnomes Be Gone, and have one of the giant versions. I made the handles out of stainless, and attached purchased gnomes to them.



Here is the end capped and the quick attach service caps.

Whew...What a read! I lolled at the guys saying "whew what a long read" at page 90. I suppose the guys on page 550 will be lolling at me too! I am in the process of building mine, I got an old freezer off Criagslist for 50 dollars delivered to my house! I painted it, and built a collar for it, its starting to come together, and mostly due to inspiration from you gentlemen. I will post pictures soon when it is done!

Currently accepting ideas for Tap Handles. I think I want to make my own. Any ideas?

My old keezer died (from having wood glued directly to the sides - don't do that) so I built another. It's finished so here's a few pics. It holds 4 on the floor with room to spare, but only 3 taps for now.

Edit: Someone asked me about the collar. It is wrapped in thick white vinyl that has a diamond textured pattern on it. It's sold as drawer liner in rolls at HD http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...4#.UD5vl6HaxXp









Reason: Add blurb about collar wrap

Thanks! Yes those devices are eva-dry dehumidifiers. The desiccant beads inside can be seen through a little window. When they turn pink, you just plug it into the wall for a few hours and they turn blue again. Works great. I keep one in my lager fridge too.

Ok, here are a couple shots, of the making of.
The last picture is the mostly finished product. I am waiting on some hardware for my second tap, and a couple little addons too, like the drip tray, tap handles, and bottle opener. I will post another picture when I have everything up and going.

I did not build it, but bought it from a guy....

It really is a case for the chest freezer inside and includes castors.

I is probably to large for my house and I am building a smaller one... he inspired me...
