Looks like you put a lot of time into this and they look really nice. I'd suggest selling both plans together but that's just me.

Wow...is all I can say! I will definitely be ordering some of these in the future. Great job! Any chance you can make cases that fit the EZ Cap 1L flip top bottles?

yup, those are sweet. Put together a package and sell the plans. A pdf is worth money to the "un-creative" like myself. I paid $20 for a set of dog house plans. . .you could easily sell these. Only sell plans for one size of bottle, then the guys who don't want to figure out how to resize will pay twice.

edit - doh. . .follow link, then post so i don't look like an idiot telling a guy to do exactly what he's already done!

Thanks man! I'll have to look into what it would take to make a crate for those bottles. I don't have any of them so I'd have to get my hands on some to get measurements and such. I should get some of them for easier bottling for myself!
I (actually my wife) end up giving a lot of my homebrew away as gifts to friends and family, so it's been nice to have bottles that I don't need back. It would be good though to have some flexibility in my bottling options. There's always something new to buy

So because several people showed interest in buying the crates I did try to sell them, but it ended up being far too time consuming and the shipping was outrageous because of the size of a finished crate. They aren't very heavy, just bulky once built.

My father in law suggested I cut all the parts and ship them as a "knock down" kit, where the buyer puts it together when it arrives. Shipping would be a whole lot less, and it would cut down quite a bit on the time it takes to make them too - and hence the cost.

Does anyone like that idea?

I added some more woodworking plans to my website too, the URL is still AmericanCraftWoodworks.com

here's the new link to the page for the 12oz beer crate, and the 22oz

I would be interested in something like that as I think these are sweet, but don't have the tools to do all of those finger joints and handles and stuff

Adamulm, I also like the idea of the crates being shipped in parts then assembled by the buyer. Really nice crates btw!
