A friend of mine lives across the street from a wine distributor, and recently found a heap of wooden wine-boxes on the sidewalk. Knowing that his clever DIY friends would probably want them, he dragged them in to his garage, then called his friends.

I grabbed as many as I could, and dragged them to my shop.

I made this Instructable from my phone with the Instructables App - a great tool for writing and documenting your projects! Check it out for iOS and Android!

Step 1: The Stuff!

In this Instructable I used the following goods:
  • 8 Wooden Wine Crates
  • A bunch of A-Clamps
  • A drill
  • A 1/4" drill bit
  • Fistful of cable ties
  • pliers
Nice. I did a similar thing... but all my boxes are different sizes! It's on my page.
I love this - simple and stylish too! :) Great re-use of boxes/crates. Are those nails sticking through them though? :)
No, its the staples that hold the tops of the crates in place, I ripped those all out. :D
What a simple, clever idea!
