Crates + Tweens

When i was 13, i made up a fake boyfriend to make a real boyfriend jealous... being precocious, i came up with what i thought was a cool sounding name: Crate... i told my friends we met at swim lessons.

That aside, 4 crates (of the box variety) combine to make an excellent coffee table.

I have some crates left over from the move. I've been trying to find something to do with them. I've seen the beds made out of crates as well. I think I'll have to try this and see how I like it. http://www.abccrates.com.au/services.shtml

I think I know what my next project is going to be. Personally, I have built a few things using loading platters, and old wooden crates. Provided you get one that isn't water damaged or oil soaked, they make for really great furniture pieces. If you are so inclined, you should look up book shelves built from old crates, they are truly amazing pieces.
