April 8, 2013 by kori 13 Comments This wine crate bookshelf is one of my favorite projects ever, not only because of how it turned out, but because it was so easy and inexpensive to make. Since Pottery Barn and Ethan Allen aren’t in my forseeable future, I decided to make my furniture instead. On a side note, when my mom was around my age, she also befriended a carpenter who helped her a make a bunch of the furniture for our house.
I SPY! These shelves are filled with references to friends (who are hopefully reading) in in the form of pictures,gifts, borrowed books, and things forgotten.
The hardest part about building this bookshelf is definitely acquiring all the wine crates.
Because the directions for making this bookshelf are literally 1) Stain wine crates and 2) Stack wine crates, I’ll just give tips for actually getting the crates in the first place!
Also check out your local beer or wine distributors ( check out the name on the beer truck drivers door ) or ask a Manager who their wine distributor is or checkout the phone book. Still such a necessity in our lives, this dog kennel is both a tabletop surface and home for our puppy. So we knew better.  We built another house this weekend and let the occupants move in before it was finished.
And here is the drawing.  I'm always amazed at how accurate the drawings are to the real deal! My husband made me one of these crates as a wedding present (he also surprised me with a puppy).
Amazing Ana, just amazing.You take the mystery out of these and all the projects we would otherwise find intimidating. Before starting the actual construction project, we recommend you to plan everything, as to save money and to keep the costs under control.
If you don’t have a rich expertise in woodworking field, you should ask a friend to give you a hand with the project. Smart Tip: Apply several coats of stain or paint to the wooden components, if you want to protect them from decay and to enhance the look of the wooden crate.

We will build rather than buy, but we are so doing this for both dog's crates in our new home. I found a random carpenter to help me build a desk and a table, but this bookshelf requires no skills whatsoever and you can do it totally on your own.
You can nail them together if you want, but nothing lasts forever, so keep them loose if your structure allows it. It took me several weeks of begging different liquor stores before I was able to complete the project. I originality thought they would be my in, but they have absolutely zero authority to give you wine crates. How funny is that, I remember when she would take us with her and we’d play in the wood shavings. We brought the crate inside to see if the girls would like it and if the size would fit in our living room, with the intention of hauling it back to the garage for paint and finish. I'm an animal control officer and I'm going to have to get cracking -- I'll need about twelve of these for me, friends, relations, and would-be-animal-adopters, and that's just THIS month! So much more than our project we threw together last winter when we brought our puppy home.

A dog crate that looks like a nightstand, so it will fit perfectly in the decor of your room! Instead of spending $200+ on one of these at the store, I just built one using a tutorial from Ana White! I’m not a regular customer to any liquor stores, but if you know anyone who is, get them to ask for you! I am the person that posted on your FB post that I run the Fan Page for the local Animal Shelter. There are so many crate plans and designs to choose from, so make sure you take a close look over the rest of the related woodworking projects that are featured on our website.
In addition, we recommend you to invest in high-quality materials, such as pine, redwood or cedar, as they have a nice finish and are highly durable, especially in a humid environment. Select the lumber with attention, making sure the components are perfectly straight and in a very good condition.
