Hi Lumberjocks!

Been a few weeks since I posted but been working on quite a few things.

This was an older project that I’m now posting. I was at a flea market and saw all the cool vintage crates being sold for $100 and gave it a quick stab at making my own. This is just version 1 – with a Version 2 on the horizon which I think will be much closer to what I was looking for.

They’re awesome for storage and can be 100% bespoke to your individual space.

Thanks for watching!

I actually love the faded/washed out look of the logos. They look old, which is good in my books. Never heard of that technique. I’m looking forward to trying it!
