So we decided to redo our deck in the coming weeks and I thought this piece would make a great addition.
I also made a blog detailing the build so I won’t go into too much detail describing the steps. I used Sketchup to design the piece and since I already had a 48 quart cooler in the basement I made the dimensions to suit that.
Here is a link to the blog http://lumberjocks.com/edwood1975/blog/56778
I also just purchased the Kreg K4 jig which is designed to easily places pocket holes and I have to say it’s a fantastic product .
I hope you like it because i spent alot of happy hours building it and I used almost every tool I own and a few new ones making it
After a few comments and realizing that the cooler full of melted Walter I needed a way to get the water out of there, so I was in The Home Depot and I found this product called a gripper and it worked awesome
Here is a pic of it inside the cooler.
This is a pic on the underside of the cooler
It’s very easily installed you just drill a 2” hole in the cooler and then the. Gripper has a rubber ring that expands to fill the hole you just made by tightening a wing nut on the top and loosening it when you want to remove it and let the water out…
