I decided to make wooden re-usable packaging that was a piece of art and could also be made into a functional object. I screwed legs onto mine and used it as a side table. Ideas for re-use were posted on their website. The quality of the packaging would encourage people to keep the packaging rather than throwing it away.
I sourced a local carpenter to build the custom wood crates for a reasonable price. A local silk-screen shop was utilized to make screens and print each side of the crate, completing the crisp hand-crafted aesthetic of the wooden packaging.
