I have one more project to share from my wife’s office space. I wanted to add some storage to the L-Shaped Shelves; I looked for small crates to buy, but everything was expensive or made from cheap materials. So, I decided to just make them myself.
These crates fit perfectly with the L-Shaped Shelves. We use them to store a lot of office supplies that my wife needs but doesn’t want to clutter up her desk.
- 1- 1×8
- 1 – 1×6
- 1- 1×4
Cut List (Per Crate):
- 1 @ 6.75 in (Bottom of Crate)
- 2 @ 8.75 in (Front and Back Panel).
1 x 4
- 2 @6.75 (Side Panels)
Step 1: Attach 1×4 side panels to 1×8 bottom piece using brad nails or screws.
Step 2: Attach 1×6 front and back pieces with brad nails or screws.
Step 3: Sand and paint
I decided to paint 2 of the 4 crates I made and cover the front of the other 2 crates with fabric. To cover the front panels, I used spray adhesive.
