I have just started my first woodworking type business. LP & 45 record storage crates. There will be a blog of the adventure soon, I just don’t know how to post pictures there.
There are two designs. They are made from 3/4” AC ply and finished real nice like. Yeah, that’s right, I’m using plywood. The larger ones measure 13”x13”x12 1/4” inside(assembled), the smaller ones 8”x13”x7 1/4” inside(assembled). The extra 1/4” is so the crates are stackable. They are put together with pocket hole screws and a little glue just for good measures. The lighter colored one is a 2/1, clear/amber shellac, with the darker one being General Finishes “Early American”. There is also a G.F. “Antique Cherry” (not pictured). All three are then hit with three coats of G.F. “High Performance” topcoat. The brand is the company name and logo, Colorado Reaord Crates.
I brought 12 crates to the record store expecting to consign them. The owner loved them and bought them outright. Here’s to more of the same! Website soon. Will post with blog. Thanks for looking!
