Well, I have been working on building some stuff for my friends beer fridge. It is a modified chest freezer that is going to hold 6- 5 GALLON kegs of homebrew. He asked me to make a surround to attach the taps to and also raise the height of the fridge to hold more kegs. This is the surround. It still needs some finish put on it to make it weather proof…Its all cherry.
It has some sap wood in it…Lovely!!
I dovetailed it to make it look nice…Overkill maybe??
I also built a mobile base out of cherry…Dovetailed it to an dado’d it for a 2×6 to hold the 5 inch casters that are not attached yet. You can see one of the pins cut out from the dado for the 2×6.
I even started turning handles for the taps made out of cherry. Honing my skills on making spindles…Lots of fun and lots of shavings. Several more to come!!
Thanks to all for comments on putting threads in the handles…I eventually went with the threaded inserts and epoxied them in…I was having a hard time driving them in straight.
I will post more pics once we get everything all together and humming.
The Inside Looks like this!!
let me know what you think,
