The original Ply Crate – previously known as the Ply Milk Crate – was one of our first ever products, and has since featured in a bunch of blogs and design magazines in its raw plywood form. Over ten thousand units later, we now offer both the original Ply Crate in various sizes, and a newer flat-pack design that helps us move towards our aspiration of ‘zero-waste’.
Each crate is cut from sheets of 12mm plywood by Cameron, our CNC machine. It is then assembled (by humans) and stacked, ready to ship.
Looking for the redesigned flat-pack crate that saves on shipping costs and emissions? Choose a ‘Clip Crate’ from the options above.
Designer: Jem Selig Freeman. The Clip Crates were designed and prototyped in our previous workshop in Kensington, Melbourne.
|Typical lead time: Stocked item weeks.
Engineered with 12mm plywood in various materials and finishes.
Flat pack thanks to our spring-steel clip system (made from heat-treated steel), that pop on to form an unbelievably tough and durable assembly. The hand holes are 50mm in diameter with a 5mm edge radius inside and out. Takes around 2 minutes for one person to assemble.
Made in our Castlemaine workshop by our small team, with the finest quality materials.
