Phil and I built this crate from 100 year old reclaimed wood. The wood is sealed with polyurethane. We attached new chrome and rubber casters to the base. The casters glide really well. The crate is strong and sturdy, and incredibly versatile. This one measures: 22 1/2"L x 12 1/4"W x 10"H. The depth inside is 6 1/2".
