I found the plans for this Country Icebox at Grizzly. The drawings were quite helpful and easy to follow.
The doors and sides are cope and stick, the inside bottom and back are plywood. The top is a Oak glue up.
I had seen something like this in a store, but they wanted $450.00. I built this for about $260.00 w/ hardeware out of real Oak and Plywood, not that press board crap.

Now I have a place for my Kool Aid, not scattered about the house in different cabinets.

Larry, I had ordered the hardware from the company that provided the plans. The American Furniture Co. in California.
I also believe Rockler sells it too for a little more.

excellent work. my wife saw one of these in a magazine and really liked it—it was going for well over $500.
You have inspired me, and now I want to surprise her with it for her for her birthday this year.

Tom, do you by chance have the link to those plans? I too want to make one of these after seeing one for $450. I would like to make one that is dry like yours and then one that would hold beer and wine with an added condensing unit. Many thanks….Richard-
