    Good enough. They look a little wobbly, like they're paper glued to cardboard (for some reason, glue often bends that sort of thing) but from the pic they have the right visual cues.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Actually, they're foam core board, they'll stand up pretty well. The main trick is the whole thing is one piece. all the little spaces and stuff are just an optical illusion.

    Hopefully, with in the next two week I'll get enough of a break from work to get some pictures and instructions up.

    Alright, it took a little longer than I had hoped, but the instructions and download are available for the first crate stack. Check it out and let me know what you think!

    Hey, that's pretty nifty. I'll have to download that stuff and save the instructions for when I have more time for crate building.

    they look really good. was thinking of making a few of these for the Area 51 scene as well as making a damaged crate accessory for the Ark like in the movie.

    nice work

    I'll probably work on a damaged crate after the DVD comes out. None of the numbers on these crates match the Ark crate. I just haven't got around to making it, yet. I also didn't pick up the new Indy/Ark set, so all I've got to work with is the vintage Ark.

    They had some fancy prestentation paper at the back of Hobby Lobby the other day. One of them is grey speckled an is perfect for concrete. For a couple of bucks, it was cheaper and easier than making and printing my own.

    EN, you've done a really great job building up your site over the last year; you have some the cleanest pics on the web and most in-depth reviews.

    Keep up the great work my friend.

    Thanks for the encouragement. It's a labor of love, that's for sure. I really wish I had more time to really add all the things I want to. I'd love to do more podcasts, retro reviews, comics, etc... There just doesn't seem to be enough time. I'm really glad I fit the crate project in, it was a ton of fun to work on.

    Thanks again,

    Those are great crates. I really liked the idea of the artifact crates too, but they are a little small for a diorama. Your's are great.
    I had picked up a few of the Burger King toy crates for 12" Indy to prop his foot on.
