My daughter is eager to make a little library out of a wine crate. Anyone know where we can get such a wine crate in Maryland (suburban DC) area? We've tried a number of wine stores and they either don't have any wooden ones in - or they ones they have ship wine lying down and thus are not deep enough. Thank you.

Darn it! Just last week, I saw two lovely wine crates at my local Goodwill, but couldn't justify bringing home yet another "what can I do with this" item until I use up some of my current stash. Maybe I'll go back to Goodwill tomorrow and see if they're still there! I'd LOVE to make a little library. We live near an elementary school and have LOTS of children being walked to and from school by their parents. What a fun way to say "HI" and encourage young readers!

You can make small pet beds from wine crates.
