When I was building mine my Dad was helping me out since he has all the power tools. He was adamant that wood-glue was what you wanted to use, and that it was incredibly strong and would bond to the freezer fine. Lets just say we wasted an entire weekend.

So after I cleaned that off I went back to my original idea of Liquid Nails and it's bullet-proof.

I attached mine to the lid. I bought some weather-strip at Home Depot to put on the bottom of the wood-collar for a seal.

I went with silicon sealant. Guess what? It works great. So great I can pick up the empty freezer by the collar and have it hang. Why did I try this? My damn collar was about 1/6" too small- must've shifted while gluing it together and the lid didn't close all the way.

I started on a new collar this evening using some much higher quality wood this time. I went with 2x6 instead of 2x4 as most of that wood is trash from home depot.

Note to collar builders- drill your tap shank holes before applying stain and polyurethane; it is a lot easier and will save you touch up time.
