Harbor Freight carries a furniture mover that should work. It's just 2x4's and carpet on coasters. I got mine with a coupon they mailed for $2 but I think full price was about $5.

Thanks, I'll check that out! $5 is definitely more in this projects budget!

This would be a good idea for a 55 gallon drum, cut down and on casters. Could prob fit 4 or 5 cornies in there.

This is perfect! I will be looking into making my own soon enough hopefully. Definitely in time for the next home brew competition!

Love the build - really nice! Good job!
The name is lame, though...

Cheers!

That's awesome.

What about slats up sides for a little extra cool?

What do you have in mind to handle all the condensated sweat that runs off the side of the can? It would not be a big deal for an outdoor venue, but an indoor wedding may be a different story.
Just off the top of my head, possibly place the whole setup inside a Water Heater Tank catch pan.
