Cooler Party Cart

The back container is 8" deep. It can hold ice for open bottles of wine. The container in front is only 2 1/2" deep to put tongs or other utensils in after use.

Led lighting under the top

This is the utensils area to the left and the 14 shot glasses and 8 wiskey glass drawer.

This drawer holds five 6"×6"×2 1/2" deep trays for condiments as in cherries, lime, lemons, olives, Etc..
Theres a towel ring there to hold a towel to wipe off the beer bottles or whatever bottle or can before serving it. Both drawers have the soft /self close in the last three inches.

In this picture you’ll see the bottle opener and cap catcher on the left front and a 5 bottle liquor speed rail on the left side. All of the items are powder coated black.

On the right side is a paper towel holder and garbage can.

This cart was ordered by my sister in law for my brother in laws 50th birthday. I completely designed and built this from scratch with no plans only an idea in my head. I completely changed the design as I went along to make everything work out. The cart base is 2’ wide 6’ long and 39 1/8" tall with the 3" wheels 40" with the 7/8" top added. Its 100% cedar with 2 coats of a waterproof oil based UV protection then marine spar varnish over that. 3 coats.
Underneath the cooler is where you can place the boxes of soda, beer & wine. To the right behind the double doors is storage for paper plates, solo cups, paper towels, Etc..
For the cooler I chose a 5 day extreme cooler by Coleman that will hold 100 cans. Which is there 70 quart.

I was hoping to get it done for the contest but just couldn’t do it. There was a ton of work put into this unit. I can tell you all the materials added up to just under $1000.00. Now thats every nail, screw, wheels, wood, glue, Etc.. well if theres any questions please ask I’ll try and answer them in a timely fashion. Thanks

WoW! WoW👍🏾
That’s a fantastic project Jeff. And your photos and write up are perfect. I just started reading and couldn’t stop till I got to the end. And then read it again. You must have had a blast in the Woodshop while building that one. Great work.
Your a master at the craft, man. 😎

That sir is a party on wheels! Amazing, truly amazing!

Mike40 ...

Looks really great Jeff. I would give this one a more snooty name like ‘Hospitality Cart’ since it is so well made and good looking.

Brian ...

That’s a big, complicated project. I can easily see how you could stuff $1,000 worth of stuff in there. There’s a lot going on, for sure. Anyway it looks great. I hope they love it and party like it’s 1999! ;-)

Nice work! If you are anything like me I bet you went to sleep some evenings thinking about design challenges or sometimes work things out as you are driving down the road. Wheels always spinning.
