Our Original Cowboy Coolers are made out of juniper, they are insulated and have a removable liner that is waterproof. The lid is hinged and the handle is made from twisted old growth juniper, and accented with a western concho. We also personalize many of the lids with our clients brand or initials. We offer two different styles of antique bottle openers attached to the cooler. The bottom of the cooler has rolling casters to make it very easy to move around.

How fun! I thought maybe that handle was a tap.

Very nice, what kind of tools do you use to hollow the log out.

We use a chainsaw to hollow out the log, it can be a bit dangerous….

That is really COOOOL! Pun intended. The handle reminds me of a saddle horn. Nice work and welcome to LJ’s.

ND2ELK, A Texan comments. That’s not a cooler it’s a texas beer mug.
