Plans to Build the Crates for the Napa Style Inspired San Marcos Sideboard
Hey there! Just as we promised, we’ve got the plans for the crates that perfectly match the Napa Style Inspired San Marcos Sideboard. But here’s the exciting part – these plans aren’t limited to just this table! You can use them to fulfill all your organizing needs. So, without further ado, here are the plans you’ve been waiting for! Enjoy!
- 3 – 1×2 at 8′
- 14-1×3 at 8′ (for six crates)
- 1 – 2′ x 4′ sheet of 3/4″ plywood
- 1 – 4′ x 4′ sheet of 3/4″ plywood
- 1-1/4″ screws (<– affiliate link!)
- Wood glue
- Sandpaper (100, 150, 220 grits)
- Finishing supplies (primer & paint, or stain, sealer)
- 6 – 3/4″ plywood at 16-1/2″ x 18-1/2″ – Crate Bottoms
- 24 – 1×2 at 9-1/4″ – Posts
- 36 – 1×3 at 18″ – Side Slats
- 36 – 1×3 at 18-1/2″ – Side Slats
Cut the pieces for the bottoms and the posts. Attach the posts to the bottoms as shown using glue and countersunk 1-1/4″ screws through the bottom into the ends of the posts.
Cut the pieces for the slats. Attach the longer slats first (to create the sides) using glue and 1-1/4″ screws, then attach the shorter slats in the same manner to create the front and back.
Finish as desired! If desired, handles can be added to the sides, as well as adding Teflon feet to the bottom so they won’t mar any surfaces suck as tabletops, shelves or floors.
The crates can also serve many other uses – they can be stacked in a mudroom to corral shoes or pet supplies, used for craft storage, or even as a place to store books! These crates will fit most of the other bench or bookcase plans featured on this site without a lot of adjustment. The storage possibilities are endless!
