This is an ice chest I created during the summer of 2009. It has a tray that lifts up.

What a fantastic Idea. That should be marketed.

This is a great idea! I’ve been looking for ideas for a grilling staging table, I never thought about using a lift like that. Is that just a regular cooler inside?

This is a great design. Where did you get the hardware for the top? Thanks.

I have seen those for sell in my area but nothing with a lift tray like that. That’s a good idea. With all that snow around it looks like it might be used to keep the beer from freezing.

It looks very nice. Good job. I am wondering what wood you used and how you finished it.

A great looking design and it could be used as a baby changing table. LOL

I like the idea on the lid.

ICE CHEST PROJECT I used cedar because it will be outside. I used an old cooler for the liner and I desgined the hardware myself. Notice the tray leans back slightly to keep things from falling off ?

ICE CHEST PROJECT I guess I can take pictures and post it on projects. I think I still have the template. I’m still new at this game so bear with me (template for hardware)
