Small Crate


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? Choose a ‘Small Clip Crate’ from the options above.

Designer: Jem Selig Freeman. The first Crates were designed and prototyped in our previous workshop in Kensington, Melbourne.

Typical lead time: Stocked item.

Engineered with 12mm Radiata plywood in a raw, sanded finish.
