I should have said, "cut holes in my fridge to turn it into a kegerator." :eek:

I put my kegs in our old fridge with some picnic taps, and it's been that way for 2 years! :rolleyes: :D

How long are your beer lines? Sometimes longer lines will reduce the foaming.

I like the copper pipe idea. I'll probably borrow that if I ever get around to cutting holes in my kegorator . . .

Yeah, I've purchased them to go from a computer to a TV HDMI. Maybe you could buy them cheap and do the Frankenstein project off them?

I have my 35' redmere direct from AVR into wall, up and over ceiling to an HDMI receptacle. And a short length of HDMI to the PJ.

No problems. I do have enough slack that I could replace that...

Is it actually lathe and plaster on block? Or drywall? How is the TV mount going to attach?

I'd probably use the cable management if it were me. Paint to match and it won't be noticeable at all.

I think it looks great! :cool:

^^^ You should be able to get a wider stand.

For 15" stand, I'd personally want at least 17" or 18" wide. I like wall mounts for such reasons as the TV tipping off the stand, but . . . :)
