There are many variations of wooden crate designs. By far the most common are 'closed', 'open' and 'framed'.

Closed Crate

A Closed Wooden Crate is one that is completely or nearly completely enclosed with material such as plywood or lumber boards. When lumber is used, gaps are often left between the boards to allow for expansion.

Opened Crate

An Open Wooden Crate is one that typically uses lumber for sheathing. The sheathing is typically gapped by at various distances. The gap between boards would typically not be greater than the width of the sheathing boards. An unsheathed crate is a frame crate.

Frame Crate

A Frame Wooden Crate is one that only contains a skeletal structure and no material is added for surface or pilferage protection. Typically, an open crate will be constructed of 12 pieces of lumber, each along an outer edge of the content and more lumber placed diagonally to avoid distortion from torque.
