I'm starting a new project tomorrow...

And by a new project I mean that I am building an old project but in a bigger size.  I am making another Ice Chest/Cooler box but this time with a full-size ice chest with a drain.  You can see the original prototype build here: http://funwithwoodworkingtoo.blogspot.com/2013/05/how-to-make-cedar-ice-chestcooler-box.html

I found a good size ice chest on sale at Target the other day and plan on making this new cooler box for my Father's for his birthday.  This one will be bigger than the old one, have handles on the sides, a drain spigot, a bottom shelf, and a bottle opener mounted to the front.  I also plan on sanding and staining this one.

It's a little bigger than I had planned on using but you can't beat it for $22.09

I had a devil of a time finding one without wheels that had a drain plug.

 
The handle hardware should come right off using those screws

Same for the rear hinges
