Hamlin Sawmill’s founder building an apple crate on machine he created. An artisan at his finest, and yes, that classical music really was playing in his workroom when i came to pick up our pallet of crates. Best crates made in the U.S. www.onebushelcrate.com
Last year, in late summer I headed up to Hamlin, NY to pick up a pallet load of apple picking crates. It was a beautiful and long drive, nice to have some quiet space for the thoughts and daydreams that green rolling hills can bring. I was just expecting to get the crates and turn right around, but once i got there…wow! I got the privilege of meeting our crate maker, owner of Hamlin Sawmill, and videoing him making a bushel crate. Maybe i’m a huge nerd, but i could watch this video a billion times!
