Diy outdoor wooden cooler,my outdoor plans playhouse,wooden play yard plans - .
I used a 50 quart Igloo cooler for this project and dry fit the slats to see how many I’d need to cut. Now measure the height of the cooler and figure out how many slats you need – in my case it was 6 slats for each side for a total of 12 slats.
You’ll want enough slats to cover the entire height of the cooler plus an extra 4 to 5 inches.
Apply wood glue to the legs, position the slats between the legs, pre-drill two holes on each side of the slats, and screw the slats to the legs.
Cut one front slat to size and dry fit it between the two sides to check the cooler will fit. This is a great project for Father’s Day – and perfect for a novice woodworker!
I’m also keen to have a go at the cool cooler – maybe the landscapers fitting the pool next door may have some spare pallets for me!
This time it’s all about fun DIY pallet outdoor projects, from pallet coolers, pallet swings, pallet daybeds, to pallet chandelier, and more!
This is a small aesthetic preference but will affect the look of the cooler once it’s finished. Add wood glue, pre-drill two holes on each side of the slats and screw them to the legs just like you did with the sides. I’d love to see you win so feel free to elaborate a bit and spill the beans on your upcoming DIY adventure.
These pallet wood crates are inspired by vintage farm crates, and get their gorgeous designs from an easy image transfer with just wax paper and water!
I just curated an idea board for Hometalk here of 20+ pallet outdoor living projects you may love to check out!
Cut those slats to size and attach them to the cooler frame like you did in the previous step.
It’s easy to DIY this one, just use these Screw Hooks to hang the glass jars, and add LED Tealight Candles! Build a similar cooler with storage underneath and shelves elevated above the lid and use the lid as a work surface.
