This is a robust fruit crate made out of 6,5mm / 1/4inch plywood
Designed for storage of onions, potatos etc. or what ever you like...
You will find the files for two designs - one with all side hexagon pattern, one with reduced number of hexagons pattern.
It will take some time to cut all hexagons, but the result is rewarding.
If you like, simply omitt the cutting of some of the hexagons.Fruit Crate made out of 7mm Plywood
1 Sheet of Playwood 420 *290 mm
2 Sheet of Plywood 420 * 250mm
2 Sheet of Plywoos 300 * 250mm
All material with 6,5mm / 14" thinkness
Some PLA for the 3D-printed parts (optional)
Shaper Origin with the 3mm cutter.
Optional a 3D-Printer if you like to add some color to the final result.
Some wood glue
Building the crate:
Use the 3mm tool for cutting. The dogbones in the slots are designed for a 3mm tool
Cut two side pieces and two front pieces, one bottom plate. For the material see the list below.
The parts should have a friction fit and need only a small amount of wood glue during assembly.
Some clamps can be helpful.
For adding some color to the boxes I have also provided the STL files for the handle frame and the hexagon-plugs.
All these additional pieces you can create on your 3D-printer using PLA filament of your desired color.
