This custom kegerator build was submitted by Thomas Dial. He repurposed some old barn beams and used some black iron hardware to give the system an industrial look and feel.
The wood on the top is old resourced poplar from old barn beams. I wanted to use something that looked substantial and would add to the industrial feel. I used a grinder on all the edges and then stained-varnished. I brought them together with a Kreg Tool, using recessed Kreg screws underneath.
The black pipe was sourced from an online hardware store, which was much cheaper than my local Lowes, and had all of the pieces that I needed.
Black Street Elbow 2 inch
Hex Bushing 2 x 1 inch
Black Equal Tee 2 inch
Black Nipple 2 x 6 inch
Black Floor Flange 2 inch
I purchased the fridge off craigslist, and painted it metallic. I stripped the inside door and replaced with foil-backed adhesive rubber material which I think is used on roof flashings.
The faucets are the CM Becker V3S type.
I also ran copper pipe up to the tee in the tower in order to keep the beer cold- the fittings were just hand tightened to allow for removal/repair if necessary.
My CO2 tank and temp controller sit behind the fridge in the same corner. The drip tray was custom made by a local sheet metal shop from stainless. There are long bolts which secure the tower through the pipe flange which run down through the wood and through an aluminum plate on the inside of the fridge.
