About Our Crates
The cool wooden crates at Asheville Crate Co. come in nine different shapes and sizes to ensure you'll find a crate to meet your needs.
Each crate is handmade in our workshop, a workshop that's also where our kids like to play with the cheese (that's what our kids call sawdust cuz it looks like grated cheese). It's a family affair at Asheville Crate Co.
The Eastern White Pine lumber is purchased in Asheville, NC - home of Friday night drum circles, Thomas Wolfe, inspiring craft breweries, delicious restaurants, and the coolest people around. The lumber is measured, cut, sanded, engraved and assembled with precision and care in our family workshop.
Eastern White Pine has ideal characteristics for crate building:
- fine grain
- uniform texture
- holds its shape
- appearance is warm with plenty of character
- holds finishes extremely well (stains or paints)
- naturally decay resistant
And the coolest thing about our crates is they're all handmade here in the USA.
