Make It Take It: Storage Crate CHICAGO

09/21/2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm CDT

Store clothes, shoes, books, LPs, anything you want, in a storage crate handmade with reclaimed wood by you!

Take a big step up from your dorm room milk crates with this sustainably built, reclaimed wood storage crate. Just as handy as the plastic milk variety but so much more grown up. In this workshop you will learn how to safely use the chop saw, drill and jig saw.

Crate measures 13″ x 13″ x 14.5″

*We will use materials currently available in the warehouse so the look of finished projects may vary from the photo.


• All workshops are 18+ unless otherwise indicated; no woodworking experience necessary

• Please wear closed toe shoes with a flat heel and avoid loose jewelry or baggy clothing. Bring a shop apron if you have one.

• Materials are included in the workshop fee.

• One couple’s ticket allows for two people to make one item together.


If you can’t make it to a class, you can transfer your ticket to someone else. Please email indigo@rebuildingexchange.org with their name and email address.

If Rebuilding Exchange needs to cancel a workshop, we will notify you 24 hours before the class and give you the option of refund or reschedule.

We do not currently offer other refunds or transfers between classes.
