I was hoping I could get some advice for a project I'm working on. This is for the "collar" of the keezer (beer tap made from a chest freezer). The collar extends the inner height of the freezer so the kegs will fit inside. It also provides a place for the beer faucets.
I built a 2x10 pine frame that will have 1x12 red oak attached to 3 sides as a fascia. (for looks). I want to attach the 3 sided oak fascia to the collar without any visible screws. I have a very limited set of tools. No biscuit joiners, etc. Just a drill, circular saw, miter saw and pocket hole jig.
My plan was to build the oak fascia (3 sides), hold it onto the frame with some clamps and screw from the inside through the frame and into the oak.
Wasn't sure if the is a better method or if I should also use glue?
I am hoping to keep this as simple as possible with good end results.
I'm all ears!
Here's a picture of my frame (first version with mitered corners), a view of my pocket holes after removing the brackets (2nd version using butt joints and a keezer very similar to the one I'm building so you can see the collar.
