Scaled down orange crate

I have had this idea for a while and finally made it for a friend for Christmas.

It is using Columbia Forest products 1/4 inch Red Oak. I then used some polystain (Ipswitch Pine) and sealed it with spray shellac.

The sent the label to be printed at the corner drug store (.79¢) better than my printer, and waterproof.

I used my Cuttle file from a previous project and just updated the dimensions.

Amazing, how the same file can look so different with just changing the material.

So cute! That gives me an idea of how to finally use a CD I have of old time labels!

Yours is 10 times better than the original crate reference. Love how you rounded the edges.

I’ve got one of those Dover art books with CD of fruit labels that would work great for that project.

All these years I have used my Glowforge— I never would have thought to design crates.
Our home is decorated with vintage Pepsi crates. I collect Pepsi memorabilia.

Your crate is awesome!!
