I made this coffee table for my stepdaughter’s birthday. Hopefully, this the last of the crate stuff. I have some cabinets to build.
As you can see by the pic, I bought the crates at wallyworld. HD also sells them. They are made in the USA at this facility in GA.
My family has been gawking at them. I used a 2×2 piece of plywood, added a skirt, and finished it with Minwax Chestnut stain and several liberal coats of Deft Gloss finish.
I also made a board that slides in between the slats so something can be placed in the opening. A tab and a bolt keep it in place. No nut necessary. I used the casters from a Harbor Freight furniture dolly. The skirt hides the casters from view. Just what I wanted.
Thanks for looking.
