Own a genuine piece of history that has been repurposed to fit into your home. Our crates were first put to use during WWII. This crate held 42 pounds of .50 Caliber Ammunition. After the war came to an end, it survived decades in storage, outside in the rain & snow and now has become a storage crate.
This original WWII ammunition crate has been modified to house bottle caps, wine corks and other collectables. A bottle opener has been mounted on the side for your use along with an etched plexiglass front.
*custom etching can be purchased for a small additional charge. Just send us an email with your request and we can provide you with pricing.
We are more than happy to customize most crates for you. We realize that sometimes the stain you want may not be available...no worries we can make one for you, usually with no additional charge. We just need a few extra weeks to customize it for you. The majority of our larger crates are made to order. However, we usually keep a few different variations in stock.
All of our crates can have a name plate added for a small fee (see Custom Name Plates).
