I haven't seen wooden crates like that around here in many years. Wooden bushel baskets either.

We hauled ear corn from south Alabama in those crates just a few years ago.
I'd ck in the back of the stores down there and they might have some that are headed to the dumpster.
Course it's the wrong time of the year for ear corn

Possible though I know the back of one local store during corn time, all heavy cardboard.

I built the bench maybe 25 years ago.  It had a stretchers between the leg assemblies about half way up, with a shelf on it that collected wood scraps.  I always wished it had some drawers instead.  Well I finally took the time to do it.  I moved the mid height stretchers down near the bottom, add two more near the top, with just enough room for a shallow shelf above, and then added the drawer cabinet between.  The open cubby is for easy access to the planes I use most frequently.  It's made from various offcuts of cherry I had.  Having tools close at hand will save me a few steps as I put this bench back into more frequent use now that I have my shop mostly cleared of wood.

Wish I had that bench. Nice. Smile

One of those days. The most constructive thing I did in my little shop was butcher a board into a box. Now what to do with a box. Undecided

It's easier to do this on the floor, so it's not a bench shot:

Cutting eight carousel horses for my daughter's dance troupe. Apparently i'm the only dad in the group that does ww'ing, so I'm the defacto Builder of the Props.

Jig saw and flush cutter for the win!

Template/pattern routing maybe.
