Built this just in case power ever goes out. Always wanted a solid oak ice box.

I like it a lot. Did you mill the lumber for this project?

I was telling someone this very week that if I was to re-do my kitchen that I wanted it to look like the one in Petticoat Junction—all the cupboards would look like ice boxes—and here you are showing me what it would look like!!!

Awesome. Now I’m even more sure that this is what I want in my kitchen.

Beautiful! I remember a very similar one in the attic of my parents’ house. (Wonder what happened to it?) Thanks for the memories!

I’ve always thought these were nice too. Excellent work. Where did you pick up the hardware?

How cool is that? I mean figuratively…and literally I suppose. Neat project!

MsDebbie and Guys, thank you for all the kind words- WayneC, yeppers I milled all the wood from 4/4 white oak except the interior shelves and center divider which were plywood, Ill add another pic showing the interior. Caliper the hardware was from Rockler Woodworking, I used 3/8” offset hinges and locks. TopE5, I’m sure yours will look just as nice, this was my first attempt at making raised panels for doors and cabinet sides. If you’d like copies of the plans just let me know, I downloaded them for free from somewhere. MsDebbie, if you do an entire kitchen with those hinges and locks-I want to see it! Panama Jack, you got any idea where I can get some of those plastic party ice cubes withe little insects inside? Maybe I’ll store some of them inside-LOL

Very Nice WoodButcher. I bought the hardware about 10 years ago. And I just saw it a few days ago. If I can remember where it was.

That would make some great kitchen Debbie. I might give that suggestion to my wife.

well it’s my dream … dreams are good.
if only the bank account matched the dream!

of course, now that I think about it… since it is “an ice box” I wouldn’t have to do the entire kitchen at once. I could just say i’m adding a new ice box … one at a time… hmmmm
oh Rick!!!
