Easy Wood Crate for Disc Golf Discs

Here is a project I’ve been meaning to get around to for a while.  Building a wood crate for my disc golf disc collection.

I enjoy disc golf and have amassed quite a collection of discs.  I’ve been keeping nearly my entire collection of discs in a cardboard box in the back of my car.  My collection has grown too big and the box is falling apart.

About a week ago, I noticed that some of my discs were becoming warped, twisted, and bent.  Being stored in the back of the car in the deep south will do that.  Especially in a broken down cardboard box.

Now, I am taking action and building this simple wood crate to store my discs.

Here is the preliminary Sketchup design:

I didn’t take any pictures of the build because I really just wanted to get this done.  My 6-year old son was helping me with it and I was enjoying his help.

Here it is finished.  Really simple construction, boards, screws, etc., nothing fancy.  I don’t know what I was thinking, though.  For some reason I measured the inside too wide.  Oh well, it works!

Update:

I have revised the plans to actually fit the discs and have also included a cut list.
