This oak crate was made from re-claim oak from a demo kitchen.

I made this for my daughter who is about the age where she will be moving on her own. This will be something she can use and re-use as the years go by… it will be something to remind her of where she’s been. I based on a pine crate that I have had since the 70’s that has followed me around. Her’s is much better, much stronger…. all solid oak, glued, screwed, capped, finished with Tung Oil. I like it :)

You made it more interesting with those dowels in corners.

Very nice. I’d like a couple of these myself. Do they stack securely? If not I would think a small mod. would enable that.

Thanks…. there were a lot of dowels. Just over a hundred screws to keep it together. It’s quite strong. The old pine crate I have used nails and it falls apart very easily… always putting that one back together.

Thanks…. no, it does not stack. I thought about doing that, but I wanted to follow the design of the old 1970’s pine crate I had. If I were going to make a lot of these, I would definitely redesign to stack.

that is very nice. I can sure see how a young girl will enjoy that and smile when she remembers her Dad built it for her.

Have your say...
