Needed a cooler for the patio and have always wanted a custom one, so I figured I would make one. The Artwork are some ideas I’m thinking about for the coolers…

Awesome I like the finish on it and the little dude on the front. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. You did good. Very cool cooler :)

nice job! did you just use 3/4” pine? looks like you used the “blow torch” method of getting the grain pronounced, looks really great! i didn’t see it in any of the pics, but did you incorporate a way to drain the cooler into the design?
