After seeing all these kick a** Keezers, well, I had to get one. So here is the beginning of my project. And thanks to those whose Keezers are enshrined throughout this forum, because thats exactly how I got my SWMBO on board. If anyone has any suggestions, please add, because I am going to have this done by the end of Feb.

Man, I seriously looked at Craigslist and found this beaut for $50 bucks...it was a dude's grandpas and he just needed to get rid of it. My gain I guess.

Good luck with the keezer build.....the sky is the limit with these things. You first have a bunch of decisions to make. Are you building a cabinet around it to match your decor? Do you want a keezer with a collar, a coffin on top, or both? How handy are you? What's your budget? If your doing a coffin, how are you going to cool it? What kind of temp. control are you using? There are lots of things to take into consideration, but lots of us die hard DIY'ers to help you out along the way. I have a ridiculously long thread that chronicles my "rustic" coffin keezer build from start to finish if you are interested, as do many others. To save you time, just look at the last page of my thread to see the end result, then decide if you want to go down the coffin keezer path or do something simpler with just a collar. Let me know if I can help. Good luck!

That is completely awesome information and i greatly appreciate it. I will have plenty of questions to ask and me being quite the perfectionist, i appreciate someone helping along the way.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

I just responed to your PM. I don't have exact measurements/specs, but most of the steps that I used to build my keezer are in the thread. With you being a perfectionist, you may want to use something like google sketchup or another design softwared to produce blue prints to work off of. I sort of shot from the hip on my build (and all of my other builds for that matter), but I'm happy with the end result. Let me know if I can help along the way. Can't wait to see it come together......subscribed!

Do I really need clearance from the wall of the freezer to the surrounding coffin?
