Does your cooler need some place to sit on a camp out or even in a parking lot for a tailgate party? A wooden cooler stand could be the perfect solution for your needs. The advantage of having a stand is that it raises the bottom of the cooler for easier reach by guests who for whatever the reason do not like to reach all the way down to get something cold to drink.
Another point is that it keeps the cooler from contacting the hot surface of a paved surface. While hard plastic is unlikely to melt and the cooler is thermally insulated from the hot pavement, having a stand contributes to thermal efficiency. It looks great, and the cooler is less likely to get knocked over by anyone’s stray footing. It also saves on the obnoxiousness of repeatedly having to bent to ground level just for an 8 ounce drink.
