Looks good to me! Just need some bigger nails sticking out and you're good to go.

I'm such a disaster with woodworking/other related stuff I don't even try. I just pay up for manufactured toys that I can't usually figure out how to work

I'll be building a keezer later this summer. Could be some fun pictures.

Oh, and on the thread topic, I've learned, yet again, that less is more. I'm not sure how many different grains I stuffed into my first couple beers

I applaud your DIY Spirit! However, I hope you brew better than you cut and sand. (grinny thing here)

I found out that my overall beer knowledge was quite limited. Not liking BMC is one thing, knowing beer and beer styles is a whole 'nother level.

I've learned patience and planning are important. I've learned how to make good beer.

The coolest thing I have learned is what beer really is. Prior to brewing I had limited experience with microbrews and would have never tried half of the things I've poured down my throat since I started brewing. Beer is amazing and the amount of variety, flavor, etc... is almost worthy of worship.

Just keep everything sanitized, hit your mash and fermentation temps within a couple degrees, and be patient. And I've also learned (at least for me) home brewing is cheaper!
Yeah, most store bought beer tastes skunked to me, so Ive learned the same thing.

I've learned that brewing can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.

I learned the most important thing of all, to like beer. before I started homebrewing the only beer I had ever tried was bud light and heineken and as a result though I hated beer. I started brewing mead and decided to try beer, after reading about some of the chemistry behind it I was curious. If it wasnt for homebrewing I might have lived the rest of my life hating beer.
