Now that I have my 3 tap kegerator in the house, I figured I needed to make it look a little nicer and more like some nice furniture. My wife found some inspiration from this page.

Since my brother makes cabinets for a living, I figured he could take a shot at it. So here's what we have so far. The middle section will obviously house the kegerator, and the front middle cabinet doors all open as one piece to reveal the kegerator door





Now to stain and finish it.

The other cabinet is just a big open cabinet. Probably for other liquor or storage.

I'm considering building something similar, but not as pretty. I want to insulate mine, and put the guts of a mini fridge in there (compressor and coils outside) with the fridge door on the front. Looking good so far, looking forward to see the finished product.

Alder for the top, and poplar and MDF on the bottom.

We're thinking dark/black for the base/cabinets and a cherry top. Sort of like this:

Cabinet's all finished!

Here's the cabinets being painted black



Stained top



I insulated the beverage lines by putting them into some copper pipes that were wrapped in insulation and stuffed into the hole on top of the kegerator



And here's the finished kegerator along with some shelves


Here's an inside shot
