This crate will hold a case of 12oz beer bottles with dividers to protect your homebrew. The design is based on the original Two Picket Beer Crate so if you are having problems putting this one together read the detailed instuctions for the Two Picket Beer Crate for help. This crate is made from 1x2 and 1x3 furring strips and is held together with 2 1/2 finishing nails and wood glue. The antique finish is done with a steel wool and vinegar mixture. You can find how to do the finish and how to emboss your own logo in the Two Picket Beer Crate detailed instructions as well.

Download the detailed plans here.

Will this plan accomodate a case of the shorter fatter bottles like those used by Sierra Nevada?
It could be worse.

What did you use for the insignia? A standard wood burning tool?

Edit: Nevermind.. I saw from the picket fence post that you just print it on paper in reverse and iron it onto the box.

Would this be suitable for anything other than Budweiser?
