    So I always have extra wood around from projects, /Last year I made some replica HXP M2 ball wooden crates from the Demolition of a basement project.

    Two Tin crate version

    So this year I finished a project in the basement, installing some repurposed cabinets and decided to toss on a Oak plywood top....

    im thinking I have enough plywood left over to make at least 1 Two tin crate or maybe 2 ?

    I will most likely go a little over board with this one and stain and tung oil , maybe some brass hardware hinge and latch

    Next time I have some 1/4 ply left over I will be doing crates for my 556 nato and 50 cal ammo cans....

    Very cool. I’m actually building now a rifle cleaning stand with some scrap framing lumber and plywood.

    Cool. I built myself a new shed door from a shipping crate for a large automotive part. The old shed door had pretty much rotted away.
