Crate Making / by Jason Cytacki

This past week I constructed my first crates.  The task turned out to be more challenging than anticipated as I had to build crates big enough to safely ship around 26 paintings and drawings - including my large (5' x 7') thesis paintings.

Thanks to some extremely helpful feedback by friends and colleagues I was able to hammer out some designs.  After a week of building I am happy to reveal that the crating was a success and furthermore they are currently on their way to the Rockwell Museum of Western Art in Corning New York. 

Check out some pics of the crates below!  Nothing more exciting than wooden boxes!
