How to Build a Beverage Crate
Time Required: Under 2 hours
Turn a wooden crate into a unique wine bottle holder.
- Measure and draw the interlocking grid cuts onto the rectangle inserts that will be used to interlock the rectangle inserts together to form the grid.
- The grid cutouts will be 4 3/4 x 1⁄4 inches. Measure them 3 15⁄16 inches apart from each other.
- Both of the large rectangles will have three grid cuts and the three small rectangles will have two grid cuts. See this PDF.
Push the entire interlocking grid into the crate.
OPTIONAL: Paint or stain the crate
Before interlocking all the inserts, paint or stain the beverage crate for a customized look. The pictured beverage crate was stained with Varathane wood stain in Kona and then coated with Varathane polyurethane in Clear Satin. Paint the stain on and then immediately wipe off with a sponge. Let stain dry and finish with a coat of the Clear Satin polyurethane.
