These crates fell apart right out of the box. They're stapled together, no glue is used, and the staples come out without much prompting.
I took them completely apart and glued and screwed them together. It's probably still a decent deal for lumber cut to the size of crates, but I wouldn't suggest buying them if you have no desire to reassemble them.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate - I don't suspect "barely stapled" makes it into product descriptions often.
These wooden crates are reminiscent of fruit and produce crates from a bygone era. We are using them to support shelves on our computer desks and to hold our laptops while recharging. By laying a board across the gap between two crates we now have book shelves without attaching anything to the wall.

I bought these to use for display purposes at crafts fairs thinking I could be able to pack the products in them as well. The crates are held together by staples and the wood is so soft that the staples pull right out. I adapted by drilling holes and placing wood screws in every single slat. They seem to hold together fine now but sure would be nice if they had handles cut into the sides. Would be fine as is if they were not to be moved around at all. Price is good so I suppose I got what I paid for.
We bought these for a specific spot - they worked out perfectly for the spot and purpose. The graduated sizes allowed me to stack them on their side and slide baskets into them. Now they contain the stuff with easy access whenever we want what is in them. Clutter is gone.

If these crates are laid on their sides end-to-end with the opening facing out, will they be the same height and depth with just the lengths varying? That is how I read the dimensions that are given. If they nest, this won't be possible.signman1 on Jan 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. Yes, the height and depth is the same----the lengths vary. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 8, 2013
