The heat of summer is upon us. So to help beat the heat, today I am going to share with you how you can make your own custom soda cooler. In this project I decided to make a cooler that perfectly fits a pack of soda. That way you can take the whole pack out of the fridge, put it directly into your cooler and go. There are a lot of different styles of coolers. But they all have some common features. First off, there is a layer of insulating material to keep the drinks cold. Then on both sides of the insulating material there is a layer of waterproof material to keep it sealed. Then you need a method of attaching all the layers together. Lastly, you need a way of opening and closing the cooler. Put it all together and you can make a cooler that is any shape and size to perfectly meet your needs.

Here’s the full build on MAKE: Projects and Instructables.
