Nothing too fancy, but I'm LOVING having beer on tap! I even had a 2 ounce sample before work at 7:00 am...just because I can!

The black paint is chalkboard paint, and i'm planning on putting magnets on a drip tray so i don't have to drill into the freezer.
May I ask: it looks like instead of drilling through the freezer, you basically unhinged the lid and build a wooden "extension" then put the lid back, thereby mounting the taps to the wood. Is this correct? If so, genius. Never thought of that to avoid coolant lines in the freezer wall

keezers are made in two ways either with an Irish coffin or with a collar start from the beginning of this thread and you will see.

I've explained to people the beauty of having lots of beer on tap isn't that you can have as many beers as you want...it's that you can pour half a beer, if that's all you want.

YESSSS!, I am caressing it right now.... Lol
And Thanks bud! I can't wait! I'm just afraid three kegs is not enough now... Hahaha... Just kidding.

I joked with my girlfriend the other day that the more the guys women bitch at them the more taps the guys have on the kegerator (That's how you can tell who has the sweet girlfriends and who has the tougher ones) so they need more brew on hand to alleviate such stresses.... Lol
My girl is a Three Tap woman...
Kinda in the middle...

The top and bottom are not flat like a lot of others. It's custom cut to follow the contour of the freezer door and door frame. Came out great!

I started with 4 taps and added 2 more last week. It's never enough?

Did you start with 8/4 cherry or is that 2' 4/4 board to get the thickness?

I routed a 7/16" rabbet on the bottom of my collar so it slips on top of the freezer. Nothing is needed to hold it in place.
