Trying to finish up my keezer build, and i am running into one proble. I need to mount my drip tray 14" drip tray. Not trying to drill holes in the side of the keezer. And the out side is just a oak veneer. So not much to drill into. Any ideas?

P.S. i have more pics if needed.

I used some heavy-duty, double sided adhesive tape on my drip tray (also 14"). It works really well, the only downside is that I cannot easily take the drip tray off. I just clean it up with a sponge as needed. The tape only cost about 2 bucks at the hardware store.

I bought those short shelf brackets and glued them to the side of my keezer with liquid nails. Then I glued rare earth magnets to the bottom of my drip trays and just set them on the brackets. They stay in place, but can still be removed for cleaning. My keezer is black so I bought black shelf brackets and you can't even see them.

Couldn't you just super glue rare earth magnets to the back of the dip tray. Perhaps they are strong enough to work through the oak veneer. If not super glue a thin metal strip to the oak. Or just glue the magnets directly to the oak.
Rare earth magnets are really strong. Perhaps not strong enough if you wished to set your glasses on the dip tray.... in that case do what Michele said with the L support

I used "L" shaped shelf brackets, not the plain utility "L" brackets, but you could use either. I got mine at Menards, by the shelving stuff. They have a dozen styles and shapes, and since you can see mine a little, I wanted a fancier black bracket rather than a plain silver utility bracket. As with most keezer builds, you can take any idea and make it your own!

I would probably run three furring strips vertically up the outside, glued to the oak veneer. Then you could put screws into the strips and hang the drip tray like it's supposed to be hung. Would likely be strong enough to support a full glass of beer without worrying about magnets or brackets.

Yeah thats not a bad idea at all. Do you know the dimensions of a peice furring, or is it just like a peice of one by. Think subfloor glue would be a good way to attach to the veneer? Really all I'm looking for is that it looks clean, and can hold my beer

Yeah, snag some 1x2 or even cut down a piece of 3/4" ply and use that as your backing. I'd use liquid nails, but subfloor glue may work, I've never tried.
