Yessir. She's much happier with this setup. Gained a spare bedroom in the process and its less creepy now when we have a party as folks used to have to walk right by all our bedrooms to get beer. Weird.

Yes I did. Initially I was trying to make everything reversible on the keezer and did not want to drill into it. I tried to get the drip tray to stay on with magnets. The keezer was not very magnetic sot it was not going to work. So i built the first drip tray stand and designed it to hold 12 glasses. Sides were 2x8s two shelves were red birch. I used a dado blade to notch the grooves for the shelves in the sides. Dado to also make the grooves for the glass rack also.

There are inset magnets on the back of each leg to hold the racks tight to the fridge. While the magnet won't keep the drip tray from sliding down it holds the stands tight to the freezer. I think it would be adequate to keep it safe from dogs bumping it off, maybe not sniffing the glassware though.

The original freezer was a $50 beater. It had lots of dings in it, from the car bumper. I built the second glass rack to cover the ugly dings. I have a total 6 types of glassware available between the two racks. The right side of the glass rack has a bottle opener and cap catcher.

I had to build a box to encase the shanks so that the cold air from the fridge stayed in the tap and fridge as a closed system.

Used 3" PVC (copied that idea from Big Z in post 188) to plumb the lines.
Very nice set up. Wonder if I could run a line up to my office?

Got my taps and shanks installed. Still got to hook the plumbing up to them tonight, and got to find a drip tray.
