How to make a wooden crate is the big question. There are many ways to build a wooden crate depending on the size of the product being crated.
To make a crate first you need to design the crate and map out the material that is needed. Then the material is cut to the appropriate size for assembling.
The BASE is the first part of the crate that is built. The base is made from the material that is the strongest necessary for the weight of the product. It can be made from 1×4, 2×4, or 4×4 and plywood with our company. Depending on if you need a 2way base or a 4way base. The material that is cut is put together. The base material is nailed together with the plywood on top cut to size.
The sides are then put together with the plywood and we use 1×4 that are framed on the outside. All sides are nailed together. If the customer wants the crate assembled, then we assemble and nail together all the sides making the box. We will assemble all the sides leaving the top unnailed so they can take the top off and put their product in and then they nail it shut or screw it in.
We may have the product and we will crate it up according to size. It will be finished and nail the top on for shipping. There are many times we go to the customer facility and crate onsite. We will bring all the crate that is in broken-down form and assemble them on site. There are some customers that want the crate in broken-down form and they put it together as needed.
