Are you searching for a diy Project you can actually do yourself? This woodworking project is a fun and a fairly easy one to tackle on your own. The Wine Crate Coffee Table is a great way to recycle old soon to be thrown away wine boxes and crates. Don’t have any wine crates just lying around? We got our wine crates for $5 each. We found them after the Christmas season as they were leftover from the huge holiday sales. We suggest calling around to the big franchise type liquor stores or wineries if you have them in your area. Craft stores will sell crates like this too. Print out a coupon online and you can get them for 40% off. At a local craft store they will be between around $15. Here is a wood crate you can buy at Michaels that will work just fine.
