  1. Patio/deck ice chest stand

    I made a small cooler chest a few months ago with a small Styrofoam ice chest inside as a kind of prototype. I finally decided to make a full size version with a 52 QT igloo ice chest inside for my dad's birthday. It is made out of 8 cedar fence pickets from Home Depot. It has two handle on...
  2. Cajun Cooler- First Project Post

    I saw a project here that used a utility sink for the cooler tub and was inspired to build a pair for my son and I. This was his first Father's Day! I used treated pine for the internal frame. The legs are 6/4 cypress. The lids frame and the mating frame on the cabinet is Spanish cedar. The...
  3. Wood Covered Cooler

    I saw something similar to this at a retail big-box store, and decided I didn't want to pay the 225 bucks for it. I ordered a 28 dollar, 58 quart Coleman cooler from Amazon (free shipping) and went to work making a chest around it. I decided to use oak for this because I have a whole bunch of...
  4. Wine Barrel Cooler

    This is the third Wine Barrel Cooler I've made. The first two were just to learn from and this one is the first one that I'm actually getting paid for. There's over 200 stainless steel screws in it, the holes all drilled with one Irwin 7/32 bit. I used 6 inch strap hinges for the lid and added...
  5. Cooler Table

    I can't take credit for this idea, but I would like to think that I at least took it to a new level. This is a 4'x7' table made from cedar and it has two removable panels/lids that let you access two coolers in the center of the table. Each cooler is an 8"x24" planter box that can either rest...
  6. Western cooler box

    Here is another cooler box I just finished for a friend. It is all cedar material with pocket hole construction. I used a 52 quart cooler for the inside. It is finished off with two coats of urethane. Has a drain valve as well as a bottle opener.
  7. American flag cooler boxes

    I put these cooler boxes together for a friend to give to her children. I used cedar for them and the Coleman 48 quart cooler. I added a valve on the end to drain them and a bottle opener to the front. A local business cut out the metal for me and I burnt their last names on the back. They...
  8. Cedar cooler box

    I finished another cooler box for a friend. It is cedar construction put together with pocket holes. I put their brand on the top and finished it with three coats of urethane. I like the way it brings out the differences in the grain and colors of the cedar.
  9. Logo cooler box

    Another cooler box finished for a friend whose wife has a boarding stables. I used all cedar for construction put it together with pocket hole screws and my favorite wood glue titebonde III.

  12. Wooden Cooler

    I made this with my brother about a year and a half ago for Father's Day. We had some old fence lumber that needed to get used, so this is what we did with it! It's not the most glamorous thing I've ever built, but it does work well! We started the build in my Grandpa's shop and true to form...
  13. Barnwood Cooler Stands

    Thought I'd jump on the cooler stand bandwagon cuz, well, they're pretty cool. (Pun intended). Made these out of old barnwood and rusty corrugated steel roofing I procured from a friend. The friend's barn was seriously leaning and his correction of this resulted in stripping off a lot of the...
  14. Christmas Gifts 2012

    A little late in the game posting, but here are a few of the xmas gifts made this year. All "borrowed" from other lumberjock members (I hope ya'll don't mind too much). This really is my first year getting into woodworking, so its the first year I've been able to make gifts. I have to say, that...
  15. Fathers Day Cooler Stand

    Father's Day gift for my dad consisting of leftover treated 1by's and decking. I had only a rough overlay that was drawn in Adobe Illustrator as my general guide. The cooler itself dictated more of the dimensioning than anything else. The legs were made slightly long to allow for trimming to...
  16. Scrap Wood *********************************** Cooler

    Not much of a story. My daughter wanted a rustic wedding and a watering trough as a drink cooler. I can't just throw a metal tub on the ground and call it a day, so… I had a bunch of cut-off 2X4s laying around and got to work. The only "new" purchase was the trough and the hinges. I...
  17. 30-Quart Kayak Fish Cooler

    Overview This is a plywood cooler designed to fit on the back of my fishing kayak to keep my catch cold and fresh. I like to fish northern pike and the longer shape of the cooler lends itself to storing several of these longer-shaped fish. At 30" usable length, a 36" pike should fit...
  18. Patio Cooler Table

    This is the story of my first piece of furniture. I was a bit ambitious for my skill level and I made a lot of mistakes (some because of the available tools, some because of my skill). First, I do have a complete set of Sketchup Plans which can be downloaded from here. The entire table is made...
  19. Walnut Cooler Stand

    Nothing new here but man was this one hell of a project. Mom said she wanted a cooler box and wanted it in walnut so I figured I might as well make it a skill builder. First time doing a hand cut mortise and tenon frame, first time splining miters, as well as first time inlaying a large piece...
  20. Cowboy Cooler

    I built this "Cowboy Cooler" for my sister and her husband for Christmas 2009. I first saw one of these as a mass produced unit at a local sporting good store. I thought it was a really neat item, but way overpriced. After that, I started seeing them pop up at road-side vendors and flea...
