I’ve been seeing these a lot lately and I just had to try one. We had an 80 quart cooler we use at work for various functions so I decided to “dress it up” this weekend.
All of the exterior wood used in the project was cedar fencing material (the dog ear kind) from the home center ($2.45 for a 5/8” x 5-1/2” x 6’) except for some 2” Mahogany banding that I used at the top of the “board and batten” siding.
I added some galvanized pipe for handle, a brass faucet for the drain and 2-1/2” casters on each leg.
The image transfer on the top was something that I’d never done before but I really think it added a lot to the project. It has the look of an old coke sign. It was finished with spray on shellac and a final top coat of spray poly to seal the ink.
Thanks for looking-
