Furniture Elementals are reclaimed wood boxes with standard dimensions which allow you to combine multiple boxes to create your own console, shelves, end table, night stand, coffee table and just about anything else you can think of.
◊ The outside depth of each elemental box is 12" with usable depth inside of about 11.25".
◊ The height and width options are 8", 12", 16", 20" & 24" which provide 15 different size combinations:
8x8, 8x12, 8x16, 8x20, 8x24
12x12, 12x16, 12x20, 12x24
16x16, 16x20, 16x24
The total inside space is about 1.25" less than those outside dimensions so a 12x24 will give you about 10.75" x 22.75 minus the 1"x1" supports in each corner.
◊ We provide 6 custom screws with each elemental so that you can attach it to adjoining crates through the side, top or bottom. We recommend that in larger designs where there are multiple crates on top of each other that you do attach them to each other and some designs may need to be attached to the wall as well. Smaller designs with one or two levels can function just fine just set next to each other.
◊ The boxes can be attached to the wall as long as they are screwed through the back into something solid such as studs or blocking to create floating shelves or consoles.
◊ To get started on your own furniture piece remember that the total width and height need to be divisible by 4. So a TV console 48" long x 28" tall works just fine, but a console 48" long x 30" tall does not.
◊ Once you have your size, our example is the 48" x 28" TV console, you can start filling out that area with different sized elementals. Lets start with a 20" tall x 24" wide box for decorative items and on top of it we'll add an 8"x8" for the remotes with an 8"x16" next to it for DVDs (the DVD would need to lay down in this size as the 8" dimension is not quite enough for them to stand). Now we have our 28" height on 24" of our total 48" width, next to this we'll add a 16" tall x 24" wide box, and on top of it we'll add a 12"x24" to fill out the 48" x 28" space. In the future if your TV gets much larger or you add a gaming station or you inherit a bunch of cool old books you can add additional boxes to increase the size and capacity of your console. Or if the cost of getting everything you want right now is prohibitive, you can pick up the basics and add to it after you get that big promotion you have been working toward. We'll be around.
◊ In our photos on this listing we have included graph paper, which may help you design if you print it out and use each block on the paper as 1" so that you are sure the crates you have chosen will make the size you want.
◊ To purchase all these different sizes you will need to choose one size and color and add it to your cart and then come back to the listing and add another size, and so on, until you have everything you need.
◊***PLEASE NOTE: These are not designed to be used as crates to carry items. If that is what you are looking for, please check out the listings in our crates and boxes section.
◊ There are 15 different finish options to choose from for these boxes, and you can select the same color for all your elementals or you can mix it up. Just remember that these colors are a custom mix and may vary slightly from one run to another and this finish is going on reclaimed wood which has a lot of color variation itself. So no two boxes are going to be exactly the same in color and character.
◊ The character you should expect to see in the wood includes color variation, knots, some knot holes, nail holes, and limited cracks, however, since it is reclaimed wood you could see just about anything!

As good as its sibling (see review above).

The cube looks well-crafted, solidly constructed, and came carefully wrapped (an important detail!). The wood whorls are lovely, and the driftwood paint overlay gives underlines them subtly.
