Well guys, i've been brewing for some time now, and figured i'd take a break to do a major upgrade to my Keezer.

For the longest time i've just used a collar for my keezer, and it worked fine.. but its time for an UPGRADE!

this project has been a month in the making, but it is finally finished! Enjoy the pictures!

Needed to decide on a 2 or 3 panel front..

I used a KraigJig to make the panels.. made it very easy to assemble!

All Finished!!!!!

I really enjoyed this project, learned a ton and now I have the satisfaction of saying that I created this keezer from scratch, by myself.

Also, with how nice it turned out, SWMBO will not let me keep it in the garage! She actually said it has to be in the apartment or i will ruin it with saw dust and what not.. Ha!

Cheers everyone! :tank:

Very nice build. Looks great. I like the method of detaching the freezer lid entirely. Did you mount it to the inside of the wood or is it secured in some other fashion?

I used heavy duty construction adhesive and a few sheet metal screws from the top of the lid. Since it's not load bearing, it will work fine.

I'm using the old hinges for the lid though, which may need to be replaced at some point. For now, if i'm gentle they work fine, and I added a length of chain on the inside so that the lid doesnt break off the back of the hinges.

Seems to be working so far!
