It isn't photo documented till you have a picture of you getting a beer out of it!
Exactly right. I figured having a large, plastic, insulated bucket on the bottom would keep all of that water well handled. And, it did!


Also, you're right, I need to show it in action! Will get on that too.

I like it! When I retire my new chrome faucets for SS front sealing, they will be put onto something like this! Nice. Portable. Efficient. Easy access. Good job man!

Well this thread also shows me that I've been over thinking a portable system.
I've been thinking about how to build something that would look presentable and work well enough and this looks great.
Only real change I might make is wheels. Large enough ones to go over rough ground.

Good idea. How heavy is it?

That stain job is pretty rough though. Shoulda just painted it. Stain on cheap plywood is pretty bad.

I'm thinking wheels like these off of an "off road" wheelbarrow might do the trick? Or for overkill, you could strip down your child daughter's kid's bike for small enough bike tires to not have them stick out stupid far from the rear. I only say do it to your daughter's bike because why would you ever take away a male offspring's mobility and primary way of picking up chicks at the playground?

Old thread, I know. The weight of all that plywood and two kegs must be murder on those little cooler wheels. I made a single kegerator with the MaxCold version of this cooler, with the 5 gal keg barely sticking out of the carefully cut hole in the lid. I also mounted a CO2 regulator in the lid, with a 20oz paintball tank screwed in underneath. Power to the tinkerers.

You should add a solar car fan to circulate the air inside.. May help keep it cooler inside. I'd like to see if it helps with efficiency.
