UPDATE 2: Updated again with a lower poly version. 132 triangles (72 faces) on the first crate, 84 triangles (42 faces) on the second crate.
UPDATE: The .blend file has been updated with the new textured 156 triangle (84 face) crate. Also, I’ve included a second crate with no cross-support boards (54 faces, 108 triangles). Here’s a screenshot with some dynamic lighting (download the new .blend in the original post below):
I was practicing my modelling and texturing, and I decided to make a wooden shipping crate, since it seemed like something that could be useful in future projects. I would probably do a few things differently if I were going to use it in a game, but it still looks good (in my humble opinion). If anyone is interested, you may download it and use it freely.
The original crate had 186 faces (about 300 triangles). You can do it with six faces (12 triangles) if you want to, but I prefer a bit more depth.
