Unfinished Crates/Totes

For those of you who had unit blocks that came in a crate, here is our imported tote for blocks.  These crates have dovetailed joints and plywood bottoms and are imported from Thailand.  The inside is about 11.25" by 13.875" by 4.5".  The crates have small, square "footies" so they can be stacked, and an open top.  They are large enough to hold about 18 lbs of blocks, but small enough for a child to carry.  A handhold is provided in each end for carrying the crate. They can be stained or painted or simply left as-is.  Don't expect fine furniture, but if you want a handy boxes for storing your blocks these will do the trick. 

These come assembled.  Regrettably, they are too small for the 22" pieces and certain large pieces available from Open Stock, but they will hold most of the pieces that we manufacture.  See the list below for how many of these stackable totes you might need for specific kits. 



Larger Kits need more than
One Crate
