Great idea...

I would like a few to "Bottle".

Coat them so they can get wet and when all the bottles are filled and capped hit it with a hose to clean up the spills...

Plastidip spray would be good for that.

Just my two cents here. I have built 3 of these so far and it is such a great, simple very cheap idea. I was going to make the dividers as well but by accident I happened to put four 6 pack carriers in one and they fit perfectly. No moving around at all. I have dozens of those 6 pack carriers all over the place and obviously they are free

They fit great, but are not water proof. I have some dividers I made from free old election signs that are waterproof and great for when I am cleaning or bottling and the bottles are wet. But I also use the 6 pack containers in some of my boxes. Because, well, i'm lazy, and that's really easy to do.

I use the six pack holders as well. They work great!

Long Sides = 15 1/2"

That is with the bottle dividers. and 1/2" head room for the bottles on top.

I calculated the inside of the original 24ct 12oz box as L - 15 1/2", W - 10 1/2", H - 9 1/4"

Thoughts?
I made these, and the only thing I would change is to make the Vertical ends 10 1/2" - 10 3/4" instead of 10 1/4" just to give the bottles a bit more clearance.

This is a great starting point, I'm planning on using deconstructed pallets for the wood, all I have to pay for are the brads and glue.

Thanks for the dividers too.

Here's a picture of a crate I built today. Got the 6' 1x3s from Home Depot on sale for $0.75/ea. Went back to get more afterwards and they were all gone. Dammit.
