Reproduction WWII crates

Post by Heath MI » Thu May 30, 2024 11:33 am

Anyone know where to buy reproduction wood crates for ammo, rations, or miscellaneous items? I learned recently that Frontline Crates is no longer in business.

Looking to accessorize my jeep and CCKW.

    A friend in Texas started making some. I helped him
    By sending him an original 30 cal box I had and he made a few from that one.

    His are EXCELLENT reproductions for sure!

    Let me know and I’ll put you in touch

      I've been making rations crates for myself and friends but I wouldn't even know what to charge for them or where to get boxes the right size to ship them. I think they've been coming out pretty good though
