CHECK OUT for more cool stuff!!!
For this week’s woodworking project I’m building a Rustic Cooler Box from used Pallets. The project was a lot of fun to do and pretty simple! By just using some old Pallets that were free I was able to build something that will get a lot of use. Plus, by using the Pallets I think it turned out really cool looking! Much better than just buying some new wood and building this cooler box.

    Can someone tell me why there is a tap connected to the cooler? Is it simply just to drain any ice that has melted?
