Are the extra two pieces added support for the hinges?

Yeah I was worried that there would be to much stress on the wood from the hinges. They probably were not needed but I would rather overbuild it.

Also not shown is an extra 1 inch strip around the upper lip to help the lid seal better.

I have exactly the same one and can get 4 cornies in their. I am just getting into kegging so I haven't gotten a chance to add the taps to the front. Looks good, I am thinking about paint mine too!

I think some kegs will barely fit, I ask for the skinniest he had when I bought mine...but 4 will fit on the floor and I could get 2 more on the hump with the collar.

Nice job on the woodwork.

Sorry to say that either you'll be giving those tappers a daily workout or you'll be re-buying a forward seal type (Shirron or Perlick).

You can always use them for a draft/jockey box later.

Not to change the topic, but what is the height and diameter of a corny?

Small update.

I can easily fit 3 cornies and a #10 bottle of Co2 in there. And I still have all the room on the hump for bottles.

I'm curious if you are experiencing cooling loss because you didn't insulate the wood? Anyone given this any thoughts?
