I'd like to make something nicer eventually, but this'll do for now. The base is plywood, the top is cherry.

And yes, for those with sharp eyes, yes that *is* masonry waterproofing paint

Nice work! Did you drill through the back of it?

Drill through the back of what?

If you're asking about the hinges, I haven't mounted them yet. I've got a lager in there now and don't want to leave the lid off while I work on it until it's ready to be lagered in my other fridge.

This was just a demo shot

I think Ed is asking about the wires through the back of the freezer.

Nope. I ran the sensor wire for the Love controller through the defrost drain hole and stuffed the hole with cotton.

the little white brackets once held a shelf or divider (I have them in my 25cf freezer). In my case I drilled small holes in them and used them to hang (with some wire) my White Labs tube of Austin Home Brew Supply coolie-pack goo with the sensor probe through the lid for my buffered probe setup. I bet he's using the existing bracket like I am.

That's exactly it. The sensor is just hanging on the bracket at the moment.

Do you actually put the sensor in the goo?
