I just love to play around with easy fast materials like styrofoam & tape.
This crate stool is great if you have a party or if you own a restaurant and don't know where to put all the soda and beer.
Step 1: All You Need Is This
Styrofoam of 1,5 to 2 inches thick
A saw, the finer the better but it doesn't really matter.
Step 2: Cut the Styro to Size
Just put the crate upsidedown on the styrofoam and mark it.
Then saw to size (the crate is a welcome little support for this)
Turn the crate around and put the piece of styro on the crate.
Step 3: Tape It.
Tape the styrofoam to the crate. Start with putting a piece of tape around the sawed edge.
Do it carefully and neat and you'll enjoy the end result more.
Step 4: Monoblock
Of course you can make very simple ones like this red Coca Cola crate.
Step 5: Or If You Have Some Funky Tape
Make really nice patterns.
Weave it, do whatever you like.
Step 6: Oh I Forgot About the Knife
Or actually I just thought of this while making the stool.
You could just leave the tape as it is, but I think it looks nice to cut of the underside of it.
Step 7: Stack Em Up!
As they are crates you could actually stack em up for chair height (2 crates), or as bar stools (3 crates). It's a perfectly functional way to hide or distribute your bottles, empty or full.
