Baskets and Crates
In addition to running a woodworking business, we own a small hobby farm. One of the things we grow is potatoes. LOTS of potatoes! In order to harvest the potatoes more efficiently, I designed some baskets and crates to make it easier to carry and store the potatoes.
The crates and baskets have several unique features. First of all, the slats on each side allow for air to circulate and help to prolong the freshness of our produce. Second of all, the crates stack and interlock. The legs are designed to fit nicely over the top slat of the crate below. This makes the crates ideal for putting in the back of your car or to use for storage because the interlocking feature helps it from slipping under the weight of the crate on top.
We have three standard sizes of crates and three standard sizes of baskets, but we can customize just about any size or wood.
One customer asked if we could make a double-decker basket for some jars she had in her home. I designed it and sent it to her. I added it to our store because it was a great, very utilitarian piece. It's sturdy and solid. It's great for a fruit basket or a display for your home. As with the crates, I can make it in different sizes and out of different woods.
