Aluminum Cornered Crate
By Homeroad on Jul 10, 2012
This crate began life as the leg of a sawhorse...
I love the old paint on the wood.
Using an old aluminum mini loaf pan
and tin snips, I cut pieces of the trays to use as corners...
The aluminum is soft and easy to pry the trays apart...
Using the corner of the wooden crate,
I shaped each metal corner to the box using a hammer,
then screwed the metal into place.
The handle is the heavy aluminum wire that was
holding all the tins together...
Using one more piece of aluminum from the trays
I made an attachment for the handle.
Epoxy underneath the metal helps hold the handle in place.
The crate came out great, the aluminum looks like
galvanized steel and adds a lot of character to this crate.
