I made this beer crate with some whitewood i took from a pallet.
The size is 44cm x 26cm x 26cm.

Step 1: Hammering

The planks are 1,5 cm thick
The sizes of the planks are.
4 of 44x11
2 of 41x11
4 of 26x5
4 of 23x11
I used some old rusty nails to hammer it together and drove the nails a bit into the wood.
I love it, here my end result
<p>If you lower the four vertical boards a centimeter, the crate will 'stand' on those, while making it 'stackable'..</p><p>Great crate !</p>
I am planning to build a couple of these over the weekend -- what a great design. My question is do you have any ideas for the top of them? Do you use these to age home brewed beer in or just tote around beer? I was planning to use them store and age home brew and wondered if you used them for that and if you had suggestions for keeping them in the dark to age.
The only time had beer bottles in it was for the photo.<br>And i don't have any experience with home brewed beer.<br>For the top you could go for something like this http://img1.etsystatic.com/003/0/6150710/il_fullxfull.368867957_9bhp.jpg
nice work - authentic look and easy to follow, will do this for my Christmas batches.
a trick that works for me is hit it with rusty chains, gives it a nice used look <br>:)
so did you only use the vinegar and steel wool? an i dont get how u apply it? dose the steel wool brake down in the vinegar? sorry for being a pain
No pain ,glad to see people interested in my creations.<br>I put on the solution with a paint brush and immediately wiped it with a rag.<br>Yes the vinegar brakes down the steel wool ,but nog completely.<br>If you search &quot;ebonizing and vinegar&quot; on google you will find more details.<br>
Thanks!! very quick response, dose the crate smell of vinegar? and i take it its the dark vinegar yeah? im gonna try and make this very soon ill show you some pics if its a success. thanks again <br>Joe
The vinegar steel wool mix doesn't smell like vinegar and the smell it did have wore off in a few days.<br>I didn't even know there was dark vinegar.<br>I used the normal transparent type my girlfriend has in the kitchen.<br>I will love to see some pics if you make one.<br>Succes.<br>
Good job!
