Picture of DIY Tools Crate | Wood working and just a fun project

In this project I just wanted to have a little fun with a Walmart wood crate. For some time now I had my tool slaying around everywhere so I decided it's time for them to have a "home" so here it is. I hope you enjoy it!

Things you will need:

  • Wood Crate
  • 60 grit sand paper
  • Paper stencil of your choice
  • Razor blade
  • Punch tools
  • Hammer
  • Torch or a heat gun
  • Wood stain
  • Tung Oil

Step 1: Sanding rough edges

First of all I needed to sand the rough edges on that crate, with a 60 grit paper, just to make it look a little cleaner.

Looks great and seems like a great idea for any sort of storage solution

Originally I was going to make book shelf out of 4-6 of them but because they are kinda pricey I went with this one. Maybe next time I will build something like that.

I like the selective wood burning with the heat gun idea.

Thanks, I only burned it on the edges and a little bit around the words, trying to make wood look older. Thanks for checking this out!
