Bring your party to next level. Raise your beverage cooler to a comfortable height, and then customize the case to support or promote your favorite sports team, organization or company. The raised cooler will make a great addition to your next company BBQ.
This started at request of a work associate that wanted it customized for the fire department. I used a checker plate on the front with a Maltese cross mounted on the checker plate and a handle that is normally found on fire trucks. Even the bottle opener was painted fire engine red.
The cabinet was designed to fit around an Igloo Maxcold 70 quart cooler with exterior dimensions of 29 ½” x 16 ½” x 16” high. The plan can be easily adapted to fit any size of cooler. I added a small shut-off valve and a plastic tube to the built in cooler drain that runs out the end of the cabinet. A flat top would definitely be easier to build however I curved the top to avoid people using it as a table and also shed any adverse weather.
Overall it is a great project that I’m sure will see many hours of good times.
This chair is a classic take of a director’s chair. If you embroider your logo on the backrest it will distinguish you from other members and show your pride in belonging to that particular kingdom. Although not shown here you will want to round over or smooth all edges for that nice comfy feel.
A picture of this folding chair was sent by one of the members as an idea for another project.
Although it looks complicated there are really only four major components to the chair. These parts are then cloned to produce the final project.
The toughest portion of this build is the long sweeping curves on the leg. However I have provided a template that you can make a full size pattern from which should simplify the process.
The template and detail drawings will give you the positioning for the dowel holes and the location of the tenons on each end.
As shown on the next page of the plan when folded the chair will
measure approximately 18 ½” x 27” x 56”. If you find a way to make the main pivot knob and dowel removable the chair will definitely create a smaller footprint for travel.
If you don’t have a method to make the large pivot knob, I’m sure you could find a rosette molding piece at the hardware store that would do the job nicely.
