ShutupLorie was asked by her boss if she could build a pirate chest cooler. Not only did she pull it off, I think she did a fantastic job. Luckily she also took pictures of the entire process and added a few notes on the construction. She also answered some questions about the construction on Reddit.
I love this thing. I can imagine adding this to my camping accessories easily. There looks to be enough space in that lid for additional storage too!
