"C" is for Crate

Another pallet project.  This great crate was made entirely from reclaimed wood, almost all pallet boards except the end panels which came from my scrap pile.  No painting, staining or sealing just au natural:

This is what I started with:

I tore it up and got a lot of great pieces (most went to making more stools but that's another post).  These are the actual pieces I used for the crate, all sanded and ready to build:

I simply built an open box, drilled two holes in each side for the rope and tied knots so I had some handles.  Thanks again to Ana White at for the inspiration.

Bottom view before wheels went on:

Now she's ready to roll with wheels:

A look to the inside:

I have to admit I usually make something for a reason however in this case I made it just because.  I'm sure someday I will find a use for this crate but for now it sits empty.
