DIY Drink Station

Build your own drink station for summer cookouts and get togethers. You need minimal wood working skills to put this great station together.
Cut all wood to the measurements provided. After fitting the outer box together, dry fit the inner divider and shelf. Make sure the fit well before you nail them in place.
After making sure everything fits, nail and glue the divider and shelf in place. Then add hinges to the front board. This will allow you to open your drink station.
After you add your hinges you can paint your drink station. Then add the rest of your hardware. Adding a chain on each side of the "drop door" will allow you to open the drink station without it falling all the way down. You can also add brackets to the back of the drink station so you can hang it from a wall or deck.
After you have added all your hardware and allowed your paint to dry and cure, you are ready to sock you drink station with all the goodies you will need for your cook out.

    Great idea, although I would put in a shelf (or raised stand) for the spigot jar - it's hard to get glasses under those things.
