Biggest piece of advice I could give you would be to rip off the back piece of the groove and leave the tongue... It'll make life a whole lot easier when trying to fit all of the old pieces together.... I'd like to see how yours comes out

Thats actually exactly what I will be doing, except the wood I have is barn wood and does not have tongue/groove. So i'll be making the joints as I go.

I actually built a collar and drilled through the back and ran the lines through that way. As far as cold goes they stay decently cold naturally due to continual use... I imagine you could get insulated lines if you wanted but I don't really worry about it, even if I have to lose a couple ounces it's never more than 3-4 to get it cold.

Now that all of the taps are on...

I finally got around to putting some pictures up, probably going to be awhile to finish, go alot going on lately. The wood I have is a little different and it just dimensional stuff, no tongue and groove.
