alright just finished it here are some pics of it i'll post more pics later of the process. i made the tower out of PVC and did a little bondo job on the top to make it look nice and flush as if one piece.

yeah definitely wanting to add another tap thats part of the reason for me making the tower so tall so i can put another tap down and off to the side. just had to make it single tap so the mrs. wouldn't put up to much of a fight but the 2nd tap will be coming soon.

it's killing me i just finished bottling my first batch so i have to wait till this one gets down to the nitty gritty in order to make another batch to keg i just might say screw it and go ahead and start a new brew so i can have some on tap

Very creative, good job. Now you'll want to add a second tap. :)

Looks like SWMBO is pleased back there. ;)

i got the tap handle from kegworks.com. its the one where you can change out your own lables. the actual tap i got from beveragefactory.com the extended black piece is that you see is just a small PVC pipe that i spray painted to cover up the shank to make it all match

That picnic tap better not wind up being the permanent second tap!! Nice idea on the bondo, it gives it a nice finished appearance.

haha the picnic tap is definitely going to be replaced soon probably in the next couple weeks depending on shipping. thanks thats what i wanted i didn't want something that looked like a few pieces joined together. so the first thing that popped in my head was bondo.
