I love reusing stuff like cardboard. For one, it is cheaper than buying a new item, it's green, and i get a little ego boost by being inventive.
This is a great way to reuse one of the worlds most common items,boxes are everywhere. shoot,lots of boxes contain more boxes.lol.(example- big boxes that have lots of litte boxes of candy)
Maybe you make this crate because you want to be green. or maybe you just got a new puppy and have to wait til your next paycheck to get an expensive crate.Either way this is a cheap,green way to acclomplish your goal.
