I want to make one of these

Well, actually, two. My beer loving son-in-laws would love this, and Christmas is coming! Do you happen to have any "step-by-step" directions you'd be willing to share? I can figure out the dimensions but it would be really helpful to read - or see - the components and how you put it all together.
Thanks for sharing!

Wooden Cooler response

I had to make a new page because of some password issues. Thanks for comments. I have no plans yet, I've built so many it's sort of muscle memory now. Shoot me an email at adamscheetz87@hotmail.com and perhaps I can help.

And no, the lid style I like is nothing more than some tongue~n~groove boards cut to length, attached with pocket holes and nailed to the lid frame. Tongue~N~groove is optional of course, you could just use regular boards.

Thanks!

I really appreciate your response. And, I did indeed send you an email!
I have a bunch of cedar milled and planed by one of my son-in-laws. He'll be thrilled to see that I've made something he can use for his favorite beverage!

Cooler Plans

I don't mean to hijack Adam's great build, but I have some step-by-step plans available for a cooler I built with a similar style. It has a 2x2 frame with old fencing facing. For those of you looking for plans/tutorial http://www.killerbdesigns.com/rustic-cooler-a-how-to/
