It looks very nice but how do you open the lid? I am am probably overlooking the obvious.

The granite is attached to the lid. The entir thing rolls forward and you lift the lid. I am investigating gas springs for the lid.

After tinkering with it, I have dediced that I will simply slide the granite off when I need to remove lid, and then replace it when finished. Slightly more difficult than just lifting lid, but no stress on the hinges.

You may be too far along to do this but, what if you made the entire wooden housing slide out on wheels leaving the freezer in place. You would need to figure out how the handle the the extra length of lines new needed to do this but should be easier than lifting a 200 lb piece if granite every tine you need access to the freezer.

Sounds like what I had in mind. I've seen others who built their cabinet so that it would simply roll away from the freezer. Doing that, you would not have to ever lift the marble top and it would not really be sitting on top or your freezer lid smashing the seals.

BTW, you have given me an idea for a new saying: "Rome was not built in a day...but a damn nice keezer can be."

Huh... I could consider that, I haven't stained it yet, and the great thing about building thing out if wood I that you can always change things... It would take 15 foot lines though

I wonder if you could do some sort of quick disconnect? They might cause some foaming issues but I do not have an experience with them so I cannot comment.

It would take valves and disconnects... I have some o both, but maybe not 6... I buy and sell on Craigslist and have buckets of parts, but maybe not enough
