    Great piece!!! What are the dimensions of the galvanized tray and where did you buy it? Thanks for any information you can share : ) Kay

      Thanks, Kay. A friend of mine does heating and air and custom makes them to fit for me out of the same materials needed to make ducts

    I am putting together a round-up post of repurposed patriotic ideas for my blog, Sadie Seasongoods, and I'd love to include this (one photo and a link). Would that be alright with you?

      Sure! The Flag cooler is especially popular and I've made several.

    How do you fix drain?

      some I did not make a drain because the bin pops out. When I did, just drilled a hole and used a wine cork as the plug. ;)

    that's fine... you gave me enough information to play with... thank you so much for your response and for sharing such great work... I have about 4 antique pieces, grandmother's sideboard, an antique singer sewing machine which I am looking to repurpose and a wooden ironing board my grandfather made my grandmother back in the 1930s and an old table. Wish me luck.
