these are beer crates I made to case my beer that I brew (22 oz bottles) at a local brew / restaurant in town. I have brewed 6 times so far. I usually get between 72-76 bottles. The crates are made from 1/8 oak ply, oak, pallet wood (oak). I finished one of them in BLO, naked, GF wipe on, stained.

Nice crates!

72-76 bombers? Holy cow! Are you brewing 15 gallon batches or something?

Very nice.

Are you doing all grain or extract?

First thing I checked was your location…..not that I’d try to scam any beer. Its great when woodworking can blend with another hobby. Well done.
