Here is some cooler boxes I built for friends I think I have built 8 or 9 total I used cedar from a fencing supply store and the friends that had their own brand I used that on the lid. When I went to build the first one I looked around at the other ones available and I could never find any carrying handles that I liked so I built my own. They are a fun little project.

These look great, I like the drain on the side…. Nice touch… Great work.

Sophistication to beer coolers. That is what goes inside, right? Beer? And bringing technology and innovation by adding a spiget drain. Smart thinking.

Those look great. Is there one type or brand of cooler that works better for this application. I am guessing you would look for the type with no hinge,. Just a push on type
