Outdoor DIY Wine Cooler Idea: A Picnic Table with a Gutter!

Ingenious Ideas

For a creative, convenient way to serve and chill wine at your next outdoor party, consider the wine gutter! This picnic table, designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, features a built-in galvanized steel gutter down the center of the table. Fill with ice and you have a bona fide wine cooler!

This would also work perfectly well for beer and any other beverage you'd like to keep cool on a warm day. If you're not the DIY kind, you can buy a gutter picnic table starting around $150.
