So I've now completed the last phase of the tap handle build...Something to display the images that are not currently on tap. I settled on using a simple sheet metal plate available at homedepot for under 20 bucks.
The materials are;
1 24x36 inch zinc coated metal sheet. (Home Depot) $19.99
1 Roll of black faux leather adhesive backed contact paper (Home Depot) $7.00
1 24x36 Poster Frame (Meijer's ) $14.00
2 3M Command Sawtooth hangers.
The contact paper has a bit of a grain to it, so it doesn't look flat.
Assembly is simple, but takes some fiddling (2 people would make it easier) and you may end up wasting some of the contact paper. But basically the width of the contact paper roll is 1/2 the width of the sheet metal. So I cut two pieces and stuck them on the sheet. I cut it a little longer and folded it over the top and bottom of the metal plate.
There will be 100s of air bubbles between the two layers, you'll have to take a needle or an exacto knife and pop them and burnish the sheet smooth onto the metal. A plastic putty knife works well to help adhere the contact sheet to the metal.
The poster frame is basically made up of 1 piece of thick cardboard backerboard with sawtooth clips in the back to mount the poster to the wall, one thin transparent cover for the poster, and 4 pieces of mitered plastic frame ends that holds everything together. You can get them in white, black or silvered...I opted for black on black.
Using the transparent cover over the coated metal plate does not allow the magnets on the baseball card holders to adhere all that well, yet if you don't have it, the metal sheet and the cardboard are not thick enough to be held together by the frame pieces. I put the clear sheet between the metal plate and the cardboard backer and the three pieces made for a tight fit.
That's basically all there is to it. Just hang it on the wall, I used the 3m clips with the adhesive that you can stretch to remove it from the wall without ruining the paint. And laid out the graphic cards in a pleasing patter. There's room for more as I make them.
So the keezer build is effecitively done.
