I was given this great old Whiskey crate a couple of years ago and recently decided to do some research on it. These are sought after crates and valued at $45-$70 depending on the condition. It's a keeper! ...rustic and historic. So I wanted to give it a new purpose. Painting, or staining, or disassembling it would be wrong. So let's see...I could use a wine rack. I'm not at the wine cellar stage but need a place to store 3-6 bottles of wine. So with a few cuts of some 2x3/8inch flat pine trim boards, cut notches at the centers, and stacked in a X pattern inside the crate, I have a wine crate.
