So what’s your materials and construction? Looks like it might be fir ply and 2×4s.
Nice crates though.

Made from 1×4 pine and 1/2 pine ply, glue, screws and staples. If they ever come a part, I’ll be damned! lol. I got lots of scrap that I’ll use to make cooler stands that look like this one I did a while back, these are nice sellers for me as well.

Crates were a classic joiner’s assignment in days gone by: looks like you’ve done a fine job worthy of the craft!~

Very nice crates. I saw some that were similar in an action movie, but they were full of AK-47’s.

Very nice crates. I saw some that were similar in an action movie, but they were full of AK-47 s.
It’s funny you say that, when I built the very first one for the prototype locker, I delivered it to where it was going to be loaded on a truck, snapped this photo with the caption
“Black SUV, tinted windows, large wooden crate in back… not a cartel gun runner. Nothing to see here, carry on.”
Matt, woodworking is just something I do in my free time, sell some stuff to make money for tools, and lumber. I work in an office all day for the most part.

Interesting project even if the work itself is a bit boring – what are these crates used for? They all seem to be the same size is the interior also the same?

Looking good to me.I could never imagine anyone getting these delivered with somthing nice inside. and discarting them out. Actually maybe they would throw out the contents and just settle for the container.LOL Alistair

You do what you gotta do. Especially so you can buy new toys. Nice job and glad you have the work.

These are for a sporting goods store, inside are basically, school lockers. The store will fill them with stuff, lock it, and whoever has the correct key/combination to unlock it win what’s inside. The locker and crates will routinely be shipped all over the country. The insides are lined with carpet.

Nice looking crates—and it’s great that you can earn enough $$ to pay for new tools!
