Crate

Its ironic that I went out of my way to build a crate but I wanted the proportions just right for my bike.  Good thing crates aren’t too complicated…

Some preliminary sketches.

After you have the proportions you need to scale it to proportion.. if that makes sense.

The wood stock.   I’ve never been trained in woodworking so I pre-apologize to those who are if the way I'm building is totally wrong.  Measure once cut twice right?

Gotta see if it at least fits a pack of beer, if it doesn't, there is no point in building it.

Almost ready to rock.  I wish there weren’t any  protruding edges at the end but its alright, Its only a prototype.  I originally wanted to build my own rack but the time, prep, and materials that go into that is a bit much with the little time I have these days.  It’ll be mounted soon though.  Stay tuned.
