Looks so much better than beer in trashbags in milkcrates to carb

They look awesome. I'm planning to do this eventually. Right now I just take the stronger boxes home from work when mine are worn out.

Nice work dummkauf! They look great. Just curious, Can you fit a carboy in the crate?

I'll let you know! They are all still sitting in my fiance's father's garage(he has way more tools than I) as he has been gracious enough to let me take up the space in his garage and use his tools. Plus he has a huge air compressor and nail guns....I was gonna nail them all together by hand!! That nail gun was a life saver!! So no carboys at his house so I don't know yet, though I'm pretty sure they'll be too small, but it might be close.

Hopefully between tomorrow and Sunday I can get them all sanded, stained, and the dividers made. I'm leaving for SanFran for a week Monday morning so if they don't get finished this weekend they will have to sit for a week.

Made a bit more progress tonight. Got the dividers made, or most of them, will need some more wood to make the rest.



Started Sanding too, but decided to wait until tomorrow when it's not raining so I can do it outside.

Got one edge sanded down though
