Sad Milkcrate News

Not all milkcrate news is positive. The top photo is the aftermath of a crash where the two victims were sitting and talking in Florida. The one man was sitting on a milkcrate talking with a friend who was sitting in the chair. –> via, Week in Photos Gallery

The second photo is of an unknown woman who was killed crossing the street with her walker. She is described as 5’3″ tall, weighing around 110 pounds with gray hair and brown eyes. She was walking with a metallic red walker, and had a gray milk crate attached to the walker. –> via, Who was this accident victim?

Mies Van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House saved by milkcrates

Greg at sent this amazing story over. The world-famous Farnsworth House has been saved by milkcrates. Mies Van der Rohe’s iconic structure in Plano, Illonoise has been hit hard by the recent hurricane season. The worst part for me about this is that the staff at the house used fake milkcrates instead of authentic milkcrates. –> via National, Flood Waters Have Receded at World-Famous Farnsworth House

Antique Milkcrates

Crates I can’t afford.

Super Crate Tunnel, Belgium

I’ve written about this duo before and I’ve been saving this project for a sunny day. Winter/Hoerbelt’s 2003 project at the Beaufort Exhibition, in Belgium. This crate tunnel may not be dairy crates, but it’s damn impressive. –> translated article about the piece, and the photos page

Good Green Crates

I don’t have a great story about this. It’s a nice photo of green milkcrates and the post mentions the ripe possibility of a castle. I hope those pictures pop up soon. read post –> 50yen, Milk Crate Castle

RISD Ceramics Hearts Milkcrates

Esquire Magazine did a nice little photo shoot with a group of graduating RISD students. In the back of one of these photos, in the ceramics studio shows the love of milkcrates from the school. RISD is where Milkcrate Digest got it’s start by the way. –> Intelligent Design

Milkcrate Crabbing Contraption

This story’s been around, and I’m ashamed to admit that I wasn’t on it sooner. But, better late than never, crabbing with milkcrates in Bodega Bay, California, what could yummier. –> Via, Milk-Crate Crab Pots

Milkcrates and Pigs

A farm in Vermont has a strange and interesting website filled with animal facts. I spotted this crate tidbit, they say here that pigs won’t go through a fence as long as it’s solid at the pig’s eye level. So, a double stack of good ole’ milkcrates does the trick. –> Pigs.html (scroll down to May 28th)

The Milk Crate Office

Home Office Snapshots does just what it says it does. I’m not crazy about the salty post title, but the crates are represented, so I’ll let that go. –> Milk Crates, That’s New
