I removed the hinges and the lid from the freezer and screwed on my new collar. I could only find 1.5" wide insulation to seal the collar to the freezer. It seems to work, and didn't compress like I though it would.

Oh, I noticed it's only 1.25" wide weatherstrip. I was in HD today and saw some 2" wide stuff on clearance, but passed it up.

This is the lid and it's holding pretty good temperatures like this, but I am still going to put some 3/4" insulation inside the "wooden" lid, because I can feel that is is cool to the touch.

Today I picked up a bathroom exhaust fan I plan on using to keep the air moving and to cool the coffin.

Well, I'm all caught up on my build post...I hope to get more done this weekend. Enjoy and feel free to post questions or PM me... I'll post more pics as I get them.

I have some pretty good scraps left over too.

Enjoying the build. And the pics of your wood shop. I saw on another post where someone took a bilge blower fan and some pvc to circulate the air in the keezer. I thought that was a pretty cool idea and didn't take up much space at all.

Very epic build! You have some real skill... I wish I had the talent and the tools. In the meantime I'll Prost!

Awesome job so far. Being a woodworker myself, I love it when I get to see both of these hobbies converge like this.

Can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks Markd27, I hope to finish the keezer portion in a week or two, but I'm also planning to build a shelving unit "shrunk" around the keezer. Shrunk is a term I learned in Germany to describe a wall unit type furniture piece. I haven't heard it used in many years now! Maybe the flat screens killed it?
