I have one too. Mine is made of wider planks and has some old red paint. I always thought it was an ice chest. I was guessing it pre-dated the oak ice chests that the ice man delivered to. Mine has a tiny hole for draining. I would love to know if it really is an ice chest and when it would date to.
