How do you make a homemade cooler?


I needed an extra cooler on the spot last year and took a tall Rubbermaid storage container out of the garage, washed it out, filled it halfway with ice and put in the (watertight) items to be chilled. I packed extra ice around the items, and it kept things cold for several hours. I did sit it on a towel, since the outside walls of the container perspired in the heat! Realize that the ice will be melting on the inside and you cannot put things in there that are not protected from the wetness.

Make sure all the edges are waterproofed with fiberglass. Then, cut a hole in one end for the door. Then construct another box the same way, slightly bigger to fit around the already completed box. With this one, there should be a hole in the top for water to come in with a hole at the bottom for water to drain out. Then build a doorframe between inner and outer boxes to ensure no water leaks when the door is opened. Finally, open the top and let the water in.
