Red Cedar Wood Cooler

Nothing adds a touch of low-class to a barbecue or tailgate like a flimsy styrofoam cooler. While that’s not to say there isn’t a time and place for everything, Williams-Sonoma’s Red Cedar Wood Cooler lies on the opposite end of that spectrum. Its removable plastic cooler insert is completely disguised thanks to a handcrafted Western red cedar chest around it, complete with legs to raise the goods within, antique iron handles, a built-in bottle opener, and a hydraulic shock absorber to prevent the lid from accidentally slamming shut. Throw in an extra fifty bucks and they’ll even engrave it for you with up to 15 characters, though we’ll just need four to spell the beverage we’ll fill it with.
