That is a beautiful piece of furniture, not recognizable as a second hand chest freezer. Well done, I'm jealous!

Thanks, finally got around to it after scribbling notes for about a year and keeping an eye out for sales on hardware and more kegs

This is mine, total cost $335, freezer was from Craigslist. Complete project took 5 days, beer is great!

That is really nice! How easy is it to get beer in and out?

If anyone is interested in acquiring a serious commercial-grade kegerator, a 6-tap Superior (re-branded Bev Air) kegerator is for sale in Baltimore, Maryland.

Relatively easy, its tight inside with 40' of tubing, gas lines, etc so swapping kegs is a lesson in logistics but my better half wouldn't let me make a bigger one;(
