I was looking for cheap wooden crates for awhile and had no luck, so I decided to make my own!
First, I bought some strip wood from Lowe’s. These are only about $2-3 per small piece and $6-10 for the wider pieces.
I then made my cuts.
1. Starting with the sides, I cut (2) pieces 12″x7″.
2. Then I cut the front & back pieces, which were 2.5″ x 18″. I cut 6 of these.
3. Last I cut the bottom, (2) 12″x7″ pieces and (1) 2.5”x12”.
Now the finishing…I tried staining it with a homemade tea stain which consisted of vinegar, tea bags, and steel wool. This was the result.
