My son’s girlfriend saw a simple crate at a craft store, and asked if I could make her one. Of course I had to take it up a notch and add her name. The pine ends are from some old choir steps, and the slats are old cedar fence pickets. Ran it all through the planer, cut the name on the scrollsaw, and glued and pinned it together. Total time in the shop under 3 hours this evening. Felt good to whip out a quick fun project in one evening.

Nice project—wish just one of mine was that quick.

This is really nice. Boxes like these would make wonderful Christmas presents when filled with fruits and nits. They are also nice by themselves.

Simple and quick but looks really good. Great addition on the name. I’m sure she loves it. Great job!
