How to build a wooden esky?


How to build a wooden esky?



For a school project I'm going to be making a wooden Esky casing but have decided to make It a proper one so I was wondering what I could use to make the same insulation as an Esky and If anyone had a laser engraver that I could use to engrave brands onto the sides and lid of the wood? Please let  me know. 


Thank you,

Great to see you are able to do woodworking at school! We have lots of keen woodworkers in the community so I'm sure you will get plenty of helpful information, advice and inspiration from our amazing community members.
