Finally getting around to making another ice chest. But this one is for my wife so it may need extra special stuff. Made this one with clear cedar, screw and glue, butt joints and hid all the screws. Double insulated with R-40 foam sheet and use foam caulk to adhere to the wood.
Next will be attaching the the sheet metal inside. This may not be the best method but works for me.
Adding a lid, handle, wheels and fold down shelves. Then mahogany stain and outside polyurethane, as per request. More to follow.
Still have a few thinks left but it’s almost finished.
Love how it turned out and most important, the wife loves it. Ice test good, better than any I had before, kept a 36 degree temperature going on three days now. I used 20 pounds of ice. Outside temp is 78-80 deg.
