Wine Crate Recycling Tips For Home Projects

Posted: Updated:

From Networx's Adam Verwymeren:

Wine boxes are pretty easy to come by and are quite useful around the home. Used to ship higher-end wines, you can get your hands on these pine boxes for a bargain price once the wine merchants are done with them.

They come in a variety of sizes -- from boxes for a single bottle, to cases capable of carrying a dozen, so there’s a crate for nearly any task or purpose.

To land some of these versatile vessels, you can scour Craigslist, hit up a flea market or ask at a local wine shop or liquor store (I'm lucky because I live in San Francisco, where great wine shops abound). Or, of course, you can just buy some nice wine for yourself. Here are some great ways to use wine crates around the house.
