(who doesn’t love a rusting cooler, they’re sweet!!)
Wanna learn how to build a rustic cooler from FREE pallets?
I was able to do this with only one saw and a drill & impact driver. Hi Friend, this is Jeff from Home Repair Tutor and you’ll love this way awesome rustic cooler project. Primarily because it’s so darn easy.
You can expect to spend about a day and a half on this project but in the end you’ll have a great result.
It all starts with about 5-8 pallets. You can visit a local landscape supply company and ask them if they don’t mind parting with a few old pallets. Chances are high they’ll say yes and show you which ones to take.
Get the pallets home and either scrub or power wash them. This makes the wood look great and allows you to choose the slats that appear the best. I used the Dremel Ultra Saw to cut all the slats to size and assemble the rustic cooler frame.
Then I used a 50 qt Igloo cooler that was sitting my garage collecting dust. You’ll have to make a frame for the cooler lid and add some accessories (like a battle cap opener and brass drain). But I show you how to do all this in the video.
