As a part of the Blog Hop, I wanted to share with you a tutorial on how to build this Vintage Crate below!  

Fun as a Craft Supply Organizer

Or Entertaining…





Materials
2-  8 foot 3.5 in. wide Pine Boards
1/4 in. Smooth Finish Plywood    Cut 12 1/4 in.  x 18 in.  
2 handles
Small strips of sheet metal
Nails to tack Sheet metal
Wood Glue

Miter Saw
Brad Nailer
1 1/4 in. Brad Nails

*Note.  I painted my boards first before I did any cutting.  

Cut List  Out of  3.5 in. Pine
4 -  16 1/4 in. long   (Rows)
2-  12 1/4 in.  long    (Ends)
9-  3 in.  long     (dividers)

Out of Plywood
12 1/4 in. x 18 in.   (bottom)

Here is a labeled crate 



To Assemble Rows



1.  Take board cut at 16 1/4 in. long.  Measure over from the end of the board 3.5 in.   
2.  Take one of the block dividers cut 3 in. Mark on both sides of the board..  
3.& 4.  Measure over again from your last board another 3.5 in.  mark.


Row Assembly
5.  Turn row board on its side. Place amount of glue between lines where divider is marked.  Place divider board back on Row board and Nail with Brad Nailer.  Repeat for the next 3 divider boards.

Build 2 more rows doing the same process. 

6.  Take row 1 and place row 2 on top of it.  Nail at an angle attaching row 1 to row 2.  Once those are assembled  attach row 3 doing the same.   

7.  Once all three rows are attached take the last 16 1/4 in. board and nail it to Top to Top off the three rows.

8.  Take boards cut 12 1/4 in and nail them to each end of rows.

Take your plywood cut at 12 1/4 in. x 18  Glue and attach to the bottom.



9. If you want to attach sheet metal.  Using tin snips Cut 4 strips 3/4 in. wide by roughly 7.5 - 8 in. long. 
10.  Wrap metal around ends.
11.  Attach metal with nails.
12.  Attach handles on ends.

Stencil.  I made a stencil that I created on my Silhouette.  I made up the name Island Farms due to my love of Bainbridge Island.  I cut it on contact paper and stenciled it to the front of the crate.


Project Complete!  Time to fill it with fun things to Create or Entertain with!
