New! Generic Boxes


These are plain crates made from white pine, cut nails and carpenters glue designed to fit the most common tin can sizes of the Civil War period. Thank you to Dixie Tin Works for the size information. The individual cans cans may be purchased from him here

The box lids have 3/4" nails driven in to the lid to give the impression of a sealed box. Click here to see what that looks like on one of our boxes.
