Default Shop built storage stand, from reclaimed wood

Not mine, got it from another forum. The guy made it from reclaimed wood, I think pallets, and is using plastic tubs. Neat, save a ton of time, materials, labor, and $, doing one of these. Wish I had thought of it - long ago. Looks like it wouldn't be too difficult, or time consuming, to put something like this under my shelves.

And, while we're at it, the second photo is from a junk mail catalog I got yesterday. Supposedly a barn board made cooler. I don't think it's actually made from reclaimed lumber, just made to look like it. Then there's a cooler inside. Be plenty simple enough to make, and pallet wood would be great for it.

Two cool ideas. Well (excuse the pun) one is clearly cooler than the other. Thanks Theo.

Theo I never throw out wood and I always try to give it a new life, not commonly talked about is how Sam Maloof did start by using 'dunage' discarded packaging wood that he picked up at the docks when shipping companies were done with it. N

Very cool . I hope I find time to make one of those coolers for my deck as that would be awesome to have on a hot summer evening . Maybe I'll burn coors lite into the wood with the laser and stain it !

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
