Finally Completed my Minibar

Postby gibbocore » Tuesday Jul 17, 2007 10:25 am

Bought an old bar fridge off e-bay as it had no freezer, covered it in mahogany brown vinyl, (got a mate who's a sign writer wo got the stuff for me) removed the plastic top, and fahioned two bits of merbau and stained/varnished it up, got the other fittings off e-bay, got a soda stream gas bottle in the fridge now so its all self conatined! I'm pretty chuffed!
