Great Crates Part II

Step 2…

We decided to give all the crates a quick coat of poly to seal and polish them up. By ‘quick’ I mean it took about 10 hours for the three of us to finish! We also set aside about half of them and cut out the wire dividers that separated the milk bottles in their original use. I didn’t like having to alter them like that, but it needed to be done so we could stack them to create shelving. These crates proved to be so useful, versatile, and durable that they quickly became the foundation of the business, even inspiring the name itself.
