Finished this cooler today just in time to deliver it. The new owner is a happy camper. Just in time for the game tomorrow night.

I really like these coolers you make. I definitely want to make one for myself one day.Did that cooler have hinges at one time or did you buy it without hinges?

Great job. Very classy. Glad you did not ruin it with one of those nasty blue & white stars. :-)Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. I have made a couple with stars. :-),
@Vince. I buy the coolers new and remove the hinges and handles. I bag them up and pass them on to the buyer. Igloo brand is a popular brand around these parts of the country so a lot of folks already have one or more…spare handles and hinges are always nice to have on hand.
The Igloo factory is just west of Houston. I need to go there one of these days and see if they have a scratch and dent sale. :-)

I just saw a UT Longhorns one at HEB for $139.99 yesterday. I don’t think it had wheels though. Nice job!
