Birds and Soap cooler with a twist

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 02/22/2021 - 05:30

My dad has been looking to buy an outdoor soda cooler for the summer, and when I came across this plan I knew I had to make it! The design is so pretty, and the plans are very easy to follow. It is time consuming to complete but the end result is worth it! The biggest challenge I found was getting the spigot to attach to the cooler. Make sure your cooler lid is glued in level too because I learned the hard way it is a pain to fix after the fact! I personalized it to my dad's favorite soda and photo shopped him into a vintage moxie ad because it's something he would get a kick out of! He loved it! Thanks for the plans!

Estimated Cost
$150-175
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine board
Finish Used
I used a dark stain with polyurethane finish. I wanted it to look rustic so the stain was applied a little messier for an uneven look.
