4 easy steps to create our wine crate coffee table, for under $100!!

Step 1: Purchase 4 wooden Wine Crates like these from Amazon: Wood Crate Carry All

Step 2: Stain the crates. Lowe's Home Improvement store has an impressive line of stains. You could also paint it, but staining wood, to me, brings out more of a rustic look. We used a dark walnut stain for the contrast we were looking for.

Step 3: Assemble the crates: Screw the 4 crates together in the fashion shown below. Since the planks are 3/8 inches thick, thin screws in the center of each will prevent cracks. We used two screws on every other plank separated by about 4 inches which allowed for a very solid structure. Then attach to a base. We used a 3/8 inch plywood which seemed to be a good fit for this job. It is just thick enough to endure the stress of use and thin enough that it isn't super heavy. Make sure to give a 1/2 inch border to the square drawn on the plywood and don't forget to stain the base on one side!
