I posted my first deck cooler cabinet in the Spring, but have sold 10 since. I have tried to separate mine from others with carving. Names, and Logos seem to be the most requested so far.

Very nice, Do you have plans or a website with directions? I’d like to make some for gifts.

I was in Home D a few months back and they had 1×5 pine boards 4’ long for 1.82 each, I bought 120 of them. Prior to that I shop around Lumb Liquidators for deals.. Try to keep knots to a min…
As for plans.. No.. but I make three sections of the center parts, basically 1×5 pine boxes, and then add the legs. I biscuit join 1×3s for a deck on top of this, and then biscuit join a frame for the lid and add the top.. A few trim pieces and I plumb the drain with copper and two 1/2 copper to 3/4 thread connectors and a screw in faucet. Pull all screws out of cooler, handles, hinges, limit strap and drain parts.. save the stainless screws and the plastic gasket and 3/5 thread nut to put back on.

I’ve made two coolers like this and I struggle every time with what to do for the cooler drain. If I could figure out the process, I’d start making 3-4 at a time and selling them too.
