Those trendy vintage milk crates are really cool, but hard to come by. How about we make our own? Draw up a simple design and begin measuring the wood with precision. Practice using power tools like an electric table saw and cordless drill to cut and assemble this small wooden crate. The skilled professionals at American Beam and Steel will lead you through each step so that you’ll end up with a durable piece of storage that will add to your bedroom or future college dorm.

Programs in the Life Skills Workshop are sponsored by DeVry University this summer.
