This is a cowboy ice chest or cooler. It is made with recycled wood from a deck. I made two of these one for our front porch and one for our back. Because we never know where people will end up sitting.
The handles are old horse shoes that came off our horses. I bent them up on the metal vise. The bottle opener was kinda difficult to find at first, but then found some on ebay. We were wanting a western theme with them.
I didn’t insulate the inside. I decided it would be TOO hard to clean out if i lined it with insulation and metal. So I just bought some of those Rubbermaid totes that you store stuff in. I can lift them in and out to clean them. And they are waterproof. Ice seems to stay just fine in them. Plus they have a lid that’s under the wooden lid on the cooler. Thanks for looking.
