      That stuff  cannot legally be called " beer', It must be refered to as swill or flavorless canned water. But different strokes, just dont let it freeze and blow up the can!

      Looking good!  Lucky for you, you have the white stuff.   Our beer has to disappear a lot quicker!

      Full 2 days off this weekend so more progress made tonite........

      Frame work for the tank.....

      All the pieces of frame assemble for fit.....

      Centering on the base to be fastened into place.....

      Frame work centered and screwed down to the base. The base board will be sprayed with a stone textured paint light gray with the frame work stained a light pecan minwax stain..

      Test fit of the cross member that support the tank on top of the bottom with tank for test fit......

      I will be adding nuts and bolt details to the wooden frame work after it is stained. will probably go with Ozark miniature nuts and bolts on this one. 

      Up next will be fastening the tank down along with the center water column. More to come.....Thanks for checking in......

      Not much progress due to work, however the frame work is fastened to the temporary base, stained, and ready for the bolt details.

      Hopefully will get to work on it some more this Saturday..... Thanks for checking in.......
