Wall Cabinet Made With Vintage Fruit Crate And Pallet Wood
Size: 77cm x 46cm x 19cm approx.
Original wall cabinet made with vintage fruit crate and pallet wood.
I made this wall cabinet using a big vintage fruit crate and some wood from a reclaimed pallet.
First of all I used some strips from another crate to cover the spaces at the back of the crate.
I then completed the sides with pallet wood, Which I also used to make the shelves in the inside and the door.
The door closing mechanism is hand-made using an off cut from some Victorian floorboard resembling an old Tudor door hatch.
I then sanded the cabinet down extensively and used some walnut stain for the pallet wood to darken it and gave it all a few coats of bees wax.
The fruit crate still has the original writing on the side saying: "WJ Bennet & Son".
In the inside there are 3 shelves and the top of the cabinet can also be used as a shelf.
The cabinet includes 2 hooks for hanging.
I think this wall cabinet is a good size for storage and can be used anywhere giving any room a touch of quirky rustic.
