Title: A modern keezer
Post by: Wilbur on October 27, 2017, 09:00:50 PM
A quick post, I'm writing on a write-up on the specifics of building, but here's my keezer I just built. Concrete top, chalkboard sides, and it only took about two weeks to throw together. The tower is cooled by a computer fan, with some 3d printed/PVC ducting. Skull tap handles are cast concrete, from a silicone ice cube mold. It's all on a $40 Craigslist chest freezer, and fits 3 kegs and a CO2 tank.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171027/d4711cb57de37d3d6544936ba31b280c.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171027/3e05a30c013d5523822a5dd6fdb004e1.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171027/6a2f6ce59f7a5e6854327475b087d648.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171027/450f153876d095e2c0fdb63ee808c355.jpg)

It looks cool but my first question is 'How much does that weigh?'.  Will the hinges hold up under the strain?

Very interesting design.  I admit I'm not that creative so it is fun to see what everyone else comes up with.

It's actually skim coated plywood, so not whole lot. I lifted it in place by myself.

That would make a big difference. My early morning, half awake, not enough caffeine brain could only see 3.5" of solid concrete.   ;D

Very cool look.
