Just throwing this on here because I feel like it. Nothing to rave about, but made this quick crate tonight for a friend who will be getting some of my wood apple chunks for his smoker.

Used up some of my leftover reclaimed pine boards.

Sure look sturdy, wondering why you put corner posts rather than gluing and screwing to ends of boards?

NOT picking on you, just wondered.

Nice of you to do this for your friend.

Didn't have the time to let the glue set, so I decided to cut some short 2x4s in half to use as corner posts. There will be about 60lbs of apple wood chips so sturdiness was the goal.

Looks quite useful. Its a pretty similar design to the raised garden bed I made for my wife.
