How to: Make a Vintage-Inspired Shipping Crate… Perfect for a Bottle of Whiskey

created at: 08/04/2016

Ask any one who appreciates a fine sipping experience, and they’ll confirm: a bottle of spirits makes for a great gift. But, it’s a bit of a strange thing to hand over. Sure, you could use a gift bag (I guess?) or just pass it unwrapped to the recipient. But, why not make the whole thing a little special with a custom crate, which can be reused for storage, or regifted onto the next guy?   

That’s the idea behind this simple gift crate project from the team at House & Fig. Built from flooring scraps, it’s held together with brad nails, so you can assemble the whole thing in less than an hour. 

If you do make one, our vote is: nail it shut. Give the recipient a little challenge to open it. Only makes it that much more fun.
