Artillery Works is a small, creative, family owned business, based in Nevada, that repurposes ammunition material (R.A.M.). Each item is carefully chosen and given a new life. All of our crates are one of a kind, authentic original war time items. The bulk of our R.A.M. is acquired from WWII, Korean War and the Vietnam War eras. We only use original government issued crates. The majority of our crates have traveled the world and survived wars. For up to eighty years, the crates have weathered extreme heat, rain, snow, and have been discarded or forgotten for decades. They come to us perfectly imperfect and all modifications are purposeful. We take pride in preserving the R.A.M., making only a few artistic changes and fortifying the existing wood. These crates are built to last for decades. We view our products as still having some life left to offer.
All the crates have gone through the process of being additionally fortified, sanded, hand rubbed with a oil based stain and then varnished & sanded several times over. In an effort to preserve the original crate, we make it multi-functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. In an addition to using these unique historic pieces to improve your home decor, it can be utilized, as originally intended, to store ammunition. These crates make wonderful wedding, anniversary and retirement gifts. They are versatile and offer something for everyone. If you are a collector or know someone that is or has served in the military, is a first responder or you are someone who just enjoys a piece of history in your home, our products are the perfect gift to yourself and others.
