I used to have a stainless beer tower, and while it looked nice, it was not well designed. There just wasn’t enough room inside to get the beer line hardware properly assembled. After one too many spraying beer disasters, I decided to make my own tower. For most of the joints, I used a miter-lock router bit from Rockler. The wood is walnut and maple. The tap handle on the left is maple/koa and the one on the right is maple/rosewood. Due to the outragious cost of drip trays, I also decided to improvise on that as well. The metal tray is actually a magnetic nut/bolt tray from Grizzly, and I just made an oak grate to fit inside. Cheers!

They sell light diverters for flourescent lights at the big box stores that are little plastic grids – they would make a perfect drip tray insert.
