Well I decided I needed a stainless back splash for my drip tray. So I went to the recycling yard. I only needed like a 12" x 14" piece. But I drove out with a 4' x 16" 1/8" thick piece of counter top. I have the technology to cut and shape it. $10.50 for 21 lbs of stainless, spent about an hour cutting, shaping and mounting.

Phase 2 of the free freezer. Its pretty small and can only hold 3 corny kegs (5 gallons each). So I added a 2x4 to the top and installed 3 faucets.

It's almost like it knew what I was doing or something. The hinges moved up perfectly, with plenty of adjustment to get the lid to seal air tight.

We got us a beer / cider kezzer now :)

Now all we need is a drip tray, which I just ordered.
