would love to see some picks with the top opened the two different ways. I have been thinking about rebuilding mine, if I ever get around to it, just to change things around a little with the options from other I have seen sense I have made mine. Just to make things easier on my down the road. I also would like to move it from the garage to the sreened in porch and if it's going to be more visible I want to make it a touch more pleasing to the eye. although it's not bad, just minor upgrades/changes would be needed.
Thanks for the post, you have a fine looking keezer.

that seems like a lot of weight for the stock freezer hinges, oak is pretty heavy on its own...anyone had top lid weight issues issues?

when i open it up i be sure to rest it on something (usually the wall behind it) .. never have it sitting by itself w/o any sort of bracing
