Started my coffin keezer build and would like to thank all those on here that have documented theirs over the last couple years. You have been a big help and inspiration for my project

Started with a Frigidaire 8.8 cu. ft chest freezer:



Built the base using 2x6's and some 3" casters from Home Depot:



Found a local sawmill to source my Appalachian Red Oak. I haven't decided on a stain yet, I'm going to go get a few samples and test them.




Here's the finished cabinet as of today. I'll get started on the top and coffin build later this week:

Got started on the top trim and tap tower tonight. Decided to scrap my original idea and build something more unique that also allowed room for pint glass storage. I saw someone else on here do something similar and I really liked it.

Nice!

I believe you are referring to this one by Reeg68bird:



I had wanted to do something like that as well, but didn't want to deal with the angled cuts.

Well, the woodwork is now complete. Time to start the electrical and plumbing, then on to staining.
