1.5" milk crate

The small red milk crate that I made for The Starving Artist turned out so well, and I haven’t shared a file in a while, figured I’d throw it out there. Medium PG Acrylic, it is a tight enough fit that it holds decent with no glue. Some of the little bits remelted to the piece so I had to use a little pick for the smaller ones to pop them out. The dark red bit is engraved, the the bright red cut, finished size 1.5" cube.

Thank you for the post. It’s adorable so I decided to make one.

For some reason, the crate base won’t fit into the sides. The sides mesh with each other OK but the base is far too tight. I sanded down the pegs but that still wasn’t enough, forcing it in actually cracked the base off the side. :person_shrugging:

Interesting - when I made the crates out of the catalog I had the same issue, and it turned out that one set was slightly differently sized. So I used the good sides for all four and it worked…maybe that’s the issue here?

I see no difference in the sides or bottom edges - and in fact the posts for the bottom are even a bit smaller so it should go in more easily than the sides :-/

My apologies, mine was tight going together but didn’t crack, shouldn’t be that tight though. I made all the slot holes slightly bigger, I hope it doesn’t loosen it up too much, but glue is better than crackage.

I am surprised at the amount of variance in thickness of PG acrylics. Of all the material I would think it would have been the most consistent. I have a slotted designed with slots that was a perfect fit on one sheet and too tight with another.

there is a fine for using the crates (not for milk) - and you may be federally prosecuted, since they are 1.5" I assume the fine is 7 cents

7 cents well spent, I’d say!

Added extra base on Botton so that you can stack.
