Rough Sawn Wood Patio Cooler
Attach the Wheel Casters
To attach the wheels I added a ¾” x 1” x 6” block of wood on the inside of the legs for additional support and also to support a shelf I was adding.
I placed the rough edges of the block facing out and used DAP DynaGrip adhesive and screws to attach it to the legs.
I then fastened the casters to the bottom of the legs with four galvanized 1-1/4” screws.
Build a lower Shelf
I decided to attach two stretchers, one attaching the front legs and the other the rear legs. The idea behind this was to allow for a “open slat” type shelf.
I ripped all the scrap rough sawn boards I had, favoring the ones with live edges, to ¾ “ x 2” strips. I then ripped the ¾” side down to 3/6” strips. Using a RIDGID belt sander and sanded the end grain. I also used the belt sander to add bevels to the ends for decoration.
