Hey! Have we got a terrific DIY project for you today! If you love the outdoors & spending time with family and friends, then this is one you’re going to want to try. Why not make a cooler cart or cooler stand? It can be time consuming to go in and out of the house to bring your guests drinks if you’re entertaining. What also tends to happen – is you wind up with a home full of mosquitos and other bugs, that seem to sneak in as the door gets opened over and over! So don’t be surprised if you make this DIY project, that you get lots of compliments for being so smart and a savvy host.
We’ve found you 40 great projects to try. Most of these are going to take you a bit more than just a weekend to do, more like 2 weekends or a little more, depending on which one you pick and also for sanding, varnishing and stain drying time. Some of the projects are much bigger than others, which can be perfect if you entertain with a large family or always seem to have lots of guests over. We tried to include a variety, as not everyone needs exactly the same type of cooler!
Feel encouraged if you are a beginner woodworker, this is quite often a project that you can do. Its also one that lots of your family and friends will quickly notice, as they’ll see it when they come over. So your hard work will be sure to get you some great compliments on a job well done.
