    I am going to build a cool locker for my son to hang his hockey gear in, maybe one for my wife if the first goes well.

    Just think of a wardrobe with a perforated metal bottom on short legs that air can be drawn up through. A small fan like a pc case fan will be mounted to the top to pull there air through. Running a pc case fan does not seem like an easy thing to run of normal wall current. Looking for ideas on a fan or if it is easy to wire a case fan to do this I am all for it. Flow does not have to be very high, and the quieter then fan the better.

    I like the one Dave posted. 120 VAC, dual guards, low noise and power use.

    Easy.

    Yeap, thanks, exactly what I need. I never buy this kind of thing, my Home Depot searching was giving no results. Thanks.

    I will likely order one of these fans this evening. I am also thinking I would put some kind of small LED light in there, and a pressure switch (I guess) to that the light goes on and off as the door opens and closes. I don't want to get too fancy with this, but I think a light would be nice. I am thinking of making sort of a metal frame with some or all aromatic cedar panels.

    If you have a Princess Auto close try their surplus area as they'll have a variety of PC fans and variable rate wall wart plugs that can power them easily. I've used lots of these to cool HT install cabinets over the years.
