Pure physics! This bottle caddy has been repurposed from an authentic WWII .50 Caliber Crate. The name Abatis comes from a defensive obstacle formed by felled trees with sharpened branches facing the enemy. They balance perfectly with wine or spirit bottles from 750ml-1.75 liter. The hand rubbed finish preserves the original integrity of the piece. This makes the perfect gift for someone with limited counter space. The simplistic design will enhance any decor.
The majority of our crates, trays & more can have a name plate added for a small fee (see Custom Name Plates).
