About Wooden storage Boxes
Wooden boxes are often used for heavy-duty packaging when
- High strength is needed for heavy and difficult loads
- Long-term warehousing may be needed
- Large size is required
- When stacking strength is critical
Type of Wooden Boxes
Nailed Wooden Boxes
A nailed wooden box is constructed of pieces of lumber (sometimes with reinforcing battens, cleats, etc.) attached by nails or other suitable fasteners. It usually completely encloses the contents. A box usually has a bottom and four side panels and often has an attachable top.
A cleated box has five or six-panel faces with wood strips attached to them. The panels can be made of plywood, solid or corrugated fiberboard, etc. Wooden cleats reinforce the panels.
Very thin lumber is used for a wire-bound box. Wires are stapled or stitched to the girth and to wood cleats. These are sometimes used for produce and for heavy loose items for military or export use. These are lighter than wood boxes or crates. They have the excellent tensile strength to contain items but not much stacking strength.
A skid box is a wood, corrugated fiberboard, or metal box attached to a heavy duty pallet or platform on a skid (parallel wood runners)
Boxes and crates are not the same. If the sheathing of the container (plywood, lumber, etc.) can be removed, and a framed structure will remain standing, the container would likely be termed a crate. If removal of the sheathing resulted in there being no way of fastening the lumber around the edges of the container, the container would likely be termed a wooden box.
The strength of a wooden box is rated based on the weight it can carry before the cap (top, ends, and sides) is installed. “Skids” or thick bottom runners, are sometimes specified to allow forklift trucks access for lifting.
Performance is strongly influenced by the specific design, type of wood, type of fasteners (nails, etc.), workmanship, etc

Our wooden boxes all are made from the natural heavy duty wood in brown color and comes a pack of three different sizes.
A crate is a large shipping container, often made of wood, typically used to transport or store large, heavy items. Steel and aluminum crates are also used. Specialized crates were designed for specific products, and were often made to be reusable, such as the “bottle crates” for milk and soft drinks.
Crates can be made of wood, plastic, metal or other materials. The term crate often implies a large and strong container. Most plastic crates are smaller and are more commonly called a case or container. Metal is rarely used because of its weight. When metal is used, a crate is often constructed as an open crate and may be termed a cage. Although a crate may be made of any material, for these reasons, the term ‘crate’ used alone often implies one constructed of wood.
