Beer Crates

We gave my Dad a home brew kit for Christmas last year and his first batch turned out really good. We wanted to personalize the gift a little bit more so we decided to make beer crates to hold the bottles during the fermentation process. I built and assembled the crates and then we all brainstormed about the stain color and the designs to add to it. We applied a custom logo along with other designs to help personalize the crates.

The images were transferred using wax paper after be printed with an ink jet printer. After a few practice tries, we were able to get the hang of a clean transfer while adding a little character to the image. Fortunately, a 5 gallon batch would yield an even 54 bottles which was enough for 3 rows of 6 or 18 bottles a crate.

The design of the crates are a throw back to when beer was actually shipped in wood.
