Although refrigerators long ago rendered them obsolete, antique oak ice boxes remain popular with collectors, even though they’re expensive and hard to find. This do-it-yourself version is neither: it’s both inexpensive and easy to build. An authentic reproduction of an original, the project is especially popular when used as a bar, but it has many other uses. The top opens up to reveal a convenient storage area, and the lower cabinet features two compartments perfect for glassware and other fragile items.
The ice box measures 38 inches high by 24 inches wide by 16 inches deep.
