I started to make some wooden beer crates about 2 months ago, about 12 of them, a couple of hours a week whatever spare time I had.
The first few are just about finished. In the next post, if I can figure out how to attach a photo I'll put some photos up. White pine stained, a couple are poly, a couple are laquer and haven't figure out what I'm going to do with the rest.
The hinges are made out of leather, a couple outside hinges a couple piano style. The reson why is because the screws for regular hinges would have split the wood, and or were too long.
Original plans were to hold 24 beer bottles, but by golly I also holds 6 growlers perfetly.
Let me know if you want the dimensions.
