I have a question on how to attach the lid? I tried to use 1/2" hex bolt to attach the lid from the top through the OSB. With the washers on it sticks up too high. My thought was I can just drill holes in the cement board for the hex bolt head and tile would go over the top. But now I think it's up too high and want to swap them out. I tried to counter sink on a test piece but the OSB lost integrity so I didn't do it. suggestions?

Depending on how heavy your top is you can do what I did. Check my thread for photos but I used metal plate under freezer door to distribute weight evenly.

nice build and thanks for the information. i was using a piece of wood in the same way the metal won't take up as much room. My concern is on the top and getting the tile flush with the trim. With that hex bolt it's going to create a problem. I may try a carriage bolt or something with a little less of a head.

Get married
I removed the plastic liner and batten insulation and installed furring strips and screwed through the top into the strips with flat head screws. Added 1inch thermal barrier insulation and FRP board in place of the plastic.
