Just thought I'd share this one. I was recently offered a bunch of scrap lumber that consisted of a punch of pine boards and some 1/2" cedar planks that were about 26" long, and I immediately thought of new crates to hold my beer!!!
So I spent the last half of today working on them and this is what I've got so far. I built the first one to test my measurements, and then started the assembly line. They will hold 20 12oz bottles each. I went with the 20 bottle design instead of 24 bottle due to the size of the lumber I had made this design much less wasteful, and since the lumber was free I can't really complain
Anyway, here's where I left off today. I did buy some 1/8" boards to make dividers but haven't gotten to those yet either.
I was originally just planning on leaving them unfinished, but looking at the first batch I'm now seriously considering sanding them down and staining them.....we'll have to see how ambitious I am after all 7 crates are assembled.
