Laser Cut Crate

Here is a guide in how to make a weathered looking wooden crate on a laser cutter. The good thing about it, is that it has a more solid bottom, than most lasercut boxes that use box joints.

Step 1: Cut and Glue

Using the lasercutter, cut the parts from the PDF or Illustrator file. Then glue it together.

Step 2: Clamp and Drye

Clamp it together and then let it set, afterwards it looks like the image om the right.

Step 3: Weather Using a Blowtorch

By burning it with a blowtorch it will get a weathered look, afterwards i lightly sanded away the charred bits.

Step 4: Coating It With Bees Wax

By coating it with bees wax, the natural colors of the wood really pops. It also makes it feel less drye.

Step 5: Clean

After coating it, i thoroughly cleaned it with a papertowel.
