Over the years, we’ve gotten lots of compliments on our wood crates. I often joke that a distributor will call and say, “My client really liked their new display, but THEY LOVED THE CRATE AND PACKAGING!” Sigh . . . I’m never quite sure how to take that.
Our dedicated crate building team does an amazing job, so we thought we would show you how we build a small crate, often called a “coffin crate” in the trade. Expect a video showing larger crates in about a month.

What a Great Crate Video, shows the craftsmanship required to do it right. You guys make it look simple! g
As the crates get bigger, the complexity increases, especially for jigging. The large crate video will show that, plus the availability of multiple access doors.
Mel, I have always called crates “Custom Fitted Shipping Cases” I have always felt that description shows more value on a proposal than “Crate”.
Steve — Only your sophisticated and elegant manner could describe a wood crate to a client as a “Custom Fitted Shipping Case.” I suspect it’s the combination of the accent and the smile. 😉
What size shirt do you wear?
Thanks Mel. My shirt size is XL.
Mel, Instead of “Crate”, try “PCM”, or Protective Containment Module. Adds a certain sophistication, don’t you think?
