Default homemade mash tun!

Does anyone have directions to build a mash tun? Preferably with pictures and items i can find. I was thinking of one from a cooler with a false bottom.

This is what I used as a guide, that and the advice I got on these forums.

Here is another one with actual photo's that someone on these forums shared with me.

Here is one that I built. GO to this link, the pics are there. It is a 5 gallon beverage cooler with a 9" SS false bottom that I built from a 9" vegetable steamer.... worked great, 80% eff. and never a stuck mash. Let me know if you need a parts list.
