Wooden Crate Shelf 1-Hour ProjectThe crates shown here cost about $10 each, and are sturdy enough to hold books and record albums.We wanted a quick and convenient way to hang the crates, and easily take them down if needed, so we devised this simple hanging rack.

The rack is just a 1x8 board with hangers every 16 in.We assembled the hangers from machine screws, nuts and aluminum bar stock.The most difficult part of the project is cutting the aluminum and drilling the holes.

And even this is simple enough for a beginning DIYer.Check out these other wooden crate projects!To browse a variety of crates, check out cratesandpallet.com.Display or Storage for Any RoomCrates are available in various shapes and sizesApply a clear finish, stain or paintThey're easy to hang and take downProject Directions:This is a simple project that you'll be able to finish in about an hour.

Our wooden crate rack can hold four crates, but you can make yours shorter or taller to fit your needs.It's designed to hold crates with 3/8-in.-thick slats.But you can easily modify it to accommodate crates with thicker slats by adding the right combination of nuts and washers to the machine screws.

Remember, if you want to hang crates with slats thicker than 3/8 in., you'll need to increase the length of the machine screws accordingly.1.Cut the AluminumStart by making the aluminum hangers.Use a square and a pencil or fine marker to mark the aluminum bar.

Mark the bar at 7-1/4 in., clamp it to your workbench and cut it with a hacksaw, or a miter saw and a carbide blade.Dull the razor-sharp ends with 100-grit sandpaper.2.Drill Holes for the BoltsWhen you're done cutting and smoothing the aluminum, mark the aluminum using Figure B, in project PDFs below, as a guide.

Drill a 1/16-in.hole at each mark.Then enlarge the hole by drilling with a 1/4-in.bit.Clamp the completed aluminum hanger on a blank hanger.Drill 1/4-in.holes using the completed hanger as a guide.3.Mark and Drill the BoardThe next step is to drill holes in the 1x8 board to accept the hangers.

Choose the best-looking side of the 1x8 board to face out.Then turn the board over and use the dimensions in Figure A, also in project PDFs below, to draw square lines across the back of the 1x8.Mark the hole locations and drill 3/8-in.

deep recesses with a sp*d* bit.Then drill out the center with a 1/4-in.bit.4.Mount the HangersSlide the machine screws through the holes in the board.If the fit is too tight, enlarge the holes in the 1x8 slightly by wiggling the 1/4-in.

bit in the hole while the drill is running.Put a machine scr*w into each hole and thread two nuts onto each screw.They only need to be finger-tight.5.Tighten the Hanger NutsAdd washers and thread the nuts onto the machine screws.

Tighten the nuts with a wrench.Be sure to check the fit by sliding one of the crates onto the hanger.The wooden crate slat should slip easily behind the aluminum bar.If the fit is too tight, remove the hanger and add a washer to the bolt.

Mount the hangers, along with additional washers if needed, to complete the project.6.Screw the Board to a StudBecause the wooden crate rack with crates could be quite heavy, we recommend that you mount it to a stud or other solid wood.

Locate a stud in the spot where you want to install the rack.Screw the top of the board to the stud.Use a level to plumb the board.Then drive a scr*w through the bottom.If there isn't a stud in your ideal location, use two heavy-duty hollow-wall anchors like the Toggler brand Snaptoggle anchors instead.
