Build a beer

We started off with a DIY stir plate for creating healthy yeast starters, then took a look at turning tap handles on a wood lathe ok, that one was less about quality beer and more about good looking beer!

The first thing I did after having the initial concept sketched out in SoildWorks was go out and find the perfect cooler insert.

Next we contemplated using sheet metal and bending it to shape we were looking for. At this point we were still planning on installing a drain at the bottom to let the melted ice out. After walking up and down the aisles at Home Depot we came to the gardening department.

View of the table top. I have one lid on and the other is transparent. Going back to the drawing board, I played around with the design to incorporate the two planter boxes. We decided to have the planter boxes be removable instead of installing a drain.

This was much simpler and now we have the option of replacing the boxes if for some reason they break during the years of future use without having to do construction on the table. The planter boxes also have a nice rim on the outside for the lids to sit on, another added bonus.

View of the bottom of the table. I only drew the planter box supports on one side. It is the same thing copied over to the other side. After the designs were done was head to our local lumber yard to get our cut list made.

The first step after getting home with all the boards is to sand all of them. Alex jumped in and did this for me again; I think he secretly loves sanding.

It is super easy to set up and use. Arrange all the top boards on the ground, face down pocket holes up.

Put the planter boxes PB into place upside down hole side down. This was to made sure we left enough space so the PB could lift out from in between the boards.

Make sure to hold both the boards down when doing this. I actually stood on both the boards while Alex screwed them in. After the eight boards are attached to the middle board, repeat the same thing for the two side boards attaching them to the center boards.

Using a pencil, mark off points where the side and middle boards make contact with the long board two spots at each junction were pocket holes will be made. Six pocket holes are made on each top long board.

The next step is to make the boxes to go around the PBs. The first step to do this is screwing together the sides of the box. This is done by first counter boring holes then adding wood glue between the attaching surfaces.

Then, using a pencil and counter bore bit, mark off and counter bore five even-ish spaced holes on both long sides of the box.

The only thing that is important about this step is to get the cross holes to line up enough to be able to screw the bottom supports together. Put the pb inside the newly made pb support box. On a flat surface, place this assembly upside down.

The plastic pb should be the only thing touching the surface.I guess this is a “how-to” kind of week. The best kind of how-to’s: Those that involve beer!
