« Part 1: birth of the idea.... Part 2 of Cedar Patio Cooler series Part 3: hardware and finish »

OK, here’s the cooler with siding all cut and glued up. I used construction adhesive to apply the pieces to the cooler sides. the bottom is 3/4” pine, flushed to the bottom of the cedar. I’ll be adding wheels after construction is complete, because this thing will be HEAVY when filled with ice and frosty beverages! anyway, i am going with black enameled hardware, also to be added after completion.

this is a shot from the bottom, strapped all the cedar down to hold it in place.

shot from the topside, sides are now permanently attached:

more on the way!
