Some HistorySince I last posted about these Apple Crates here, I've been building one for myself and doing some research about where they came from. Well the picture above is from Ebay and it a picture of the same crate I'm working on... with a few differences. But it was that auction listing that brought me this picture as well:
|ALTON W. GRIGG LUMBER CO.|
Monday night around 11pm I wrapped up the first copy of this crate... it was a little more complicated than I had first thought! I'm not in the process of making detailed drawings of this thing so I can determine if it is something I want to make more of and, if so, how I can do so the most efficiently.

I'm also thinking about staining these things... but we'll have to wait and see. Who knows, maybe I'll put some up for sale or give some out as gifts? Maybe it will be enough to fund the purchase of a table saw so I don't have to borrow one anymore! That'd be nice...
