Woodworker Matt Thompson has been making Adirondack chairs in the shape of Michigan, the lower peninsula at least, for a few years. Recently, he added the state's upper peninsula to the chair's overall design in the form of a beer/soda can cooler and dispenser.
From Michigan-based site Mlive:
The chair is made of cedar, and Thompson estimates he spent somewhere between $400-500 in wood to create it.
"It's not very practical to sell this or mass produce this," Thompson said.
The holding chamber can hold a full six pack of 12-ounce cans. The ice contained will keep the cans chilled for approximately eight hours, Thompson said. There's a full drainage system that prevents the ice from spilling down the chute.
"Cedar is a good insulator," Thompson said.
Just look at it. (Thanks, Jack Buffington!)
