Very cool, and a great Christmas idea for someone I know!

Plans? Did you design or make from plans? I’d love to do something like that.

We don’t need no stinkin plans!
No, I found the wheels buried out back, and I had a pile of this cedar from another project.
I had 3 days when I woke up before the wedding, and the plans came to me in a dream.
The cooler is sheet copper; hand bent and soldered with a bernzo-matic; spray-foam insulation between it and the box. The hardest thing was to figure out the drain fitting. I re-labeled “coarse craftsmanship” as “rustic”.
Actually, the wooden lid hinges were fun, too.
We should be able to do everything 3 times… The third time would be a breeze.

Have your say...
