On the woodworking sites I also frequent that would be called a tapered screw head. But being a brewer you see that shape and think conical, which I find to be an expression fairly rare.

Oh I see. Well I know what alot of tools are and how to use them. But their names are do-dads and thing-a-mag-igs. So I just picked the shape that first came to mind. But now that you mention it... the box does say tapered...

It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I'm assuming you're using 12oz bottles?

That is correct. Though I am working on a 22oz bottle crate. I want them all to be able to stack together though... so the original ddimensions of the 12 oz crate may actually end up changing :/...

That would mean this one I made would be a one off. We'll see though. I haven't started the measuring or designing for that one.

well with one 16' stick of 1x4 rough cut cedar using a thin kerf blade I was able to squeeze out a single crate with about 1/2" to spare! test fit went together good, just need to glue and screw it together.

Wow! Nice job! I made a few mis-cuts the first time. Definitely would not have been able to pull it off. I wanted to post the pictures of my finished crates after spring break... but the beer closet took so long all I could do was cut the wood for the crates :/

I made three of these today - for 22oz bombers - and changed the dimensions a bit.

Board 1 = 12"
Board 2 = 10 3/4"
Board 3&4 = 12"
Board 5 = 9 5/8"

They turned out well!
