These original Vietnam War ammunition crates housed 2 cartridges of 105mm shells. The wood along with the original hasp latch gives this item a modern look to this war worn item. The latch can also be fitted with a lock.
This Howitzer crate has been designed to hang vertically on the wall. Three 750ml bottles can lay on the steel rods, with two stemmed glasses hanging above. There is additional storage for accessories, such as corkscrew or glasses, on the bottom shelf.
A portion of every purchase is donated to one or more of our chosen non-profit organizations.
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. If you don't have time to wait a few weeks for a custom crate please pick from our "in stock" items only. Feel free to email us with any special requests at: email@example.com
