OK so this is by no means ‘fine’ woodworking, but it was a quick, fun little project to help out a friend who brews beer. he wanted to make some wooden cases to store bottles and bottled beer. 24 per case, 10 cases. So we grabbed some plywood crate tops from work. These crates come from China. This is easily the crappiest plywood I’ve ever seen. Very uneven thickness, lots of voids and quick to delaminate. Despite the crappy plywood these boxes turned out really well. We made 10 in total and they were just held together with glue and nails. We added a couple dividers just to minimize the free space when using skinnier bottles. Added a couple handles and voila! I set up some stops on the router table to plunge and cut the handles. It worked quite well. Way quicker than a jigsaw or holes saws or whatever other method we could have used.
they took about 4-5hrs over the weekend, so about 30min per box. not a bad way to kill a few hours over a weekend!
Thanks for looking…
