Here are a few example of the stuff I usually build. Made mostly of scrap cedar 1×4’s and channel siding.
No finish on the outside they weather well and look even better when the cast iron gets a little surface rust on them. Great for patios and pool side. It’s funny I think I have made one for most of my freinds and family but do not have one of my own. I found some more scraps 2×8 x2’ (maple,oak alder and mahagony) through a freind I think I’ll try to make some cutting boards next.

Thanks again for a wonderfull site/community….

This is going to my favorites! Think it will look fantastic on my deck! Is that additional storage in the picture with two lids or another cooler?

This is a great idea. Is it just an igloo cooler with the hinge removed or where do the cooler parts come from?

I love this design. Any chance you’d be willing to share a materials list and some basic instructions? I’d like to attempt this but it’s a bit advanced for my newly found interest in wood working.

Cheers,
Jeff
