Here's a fun find--an old home-made wooden truck box, toolbox or utility box with "LABOR SERVICE" stenciled on top and front panels. This large, heavy duty trunk has acquired a wonderful distressed finish over the years with chippy/worn yellow paint for a great industrial or farmhouse chic look. It has a hinged top with loads of storage space inside so would make a unique coffee table or side table or firewood box. The box measures 29.5" wide, 17" tall and is 18" tall. It was built with inset sides (23" wide at inset) so it may have been used in the back of truck or tractor. It is constructed out of 3/4" thick plywood with heavy gauge gate hinges and a center lock loop to secure the lid. We are dating it to the 1960s.

CONDITION:
This wooden crate is structurally sound but as mentioned has shabby-worn painted finish with lots of scratches, nicks, chips, stains, etc. The interior has some stains but no oil or loose dirt. The metal hardware and nail heads have some rust. We have added a satin clear coat to the exterior to help stabilize the finish.

SHIPPING:
Flat $59.95 shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 USA states. We can also ship it to Alaska/Hawaii/USA Territories but it will run a bit more for USPS Parcel Post--contact us for a shipping rate to those locations prior to purchasing.

Shipping policies

I don't know about you but when I order something online, I like to get it get it fast, so It is our policy to ship items as fast as possible. Most items ship within 1-2 business days of a paid order. Items usually ship via USPS or FEDEX Ground. Lighter items usually ship via USPS Priority Mail while heavier items may ship via FEDEX Ground or USPS Parcel Select. If your shipping address is different than your mailing address, please provide us with both so we use the correct one depending upon the carrier.

We take great care in packing items but on rare occasions an item can be damaged in shipping. All items shipped within the USA are automatically insured against damage. If your item arrives damaged contact us within 5 days from the delivery date so we can process a claim/refund.

We are not responsible for items delivered to your home or business that are lost or stolen after delivery has been confirmed. If you would like us to require a signature upon delivery, please let us know prior to ordering and we will add that option for a nominal cost.

COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNTS-
We offer combined shipping discounts on most items (see shipping costs on each item). Please note that Etsy handles combined discounts this way: You pay full listed shipping cost on the item with the most expensive shipping cost and then the combined shipping discount applies to additional items (of lesser shipping costs) on your order.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING-
We are happy to ship internationally on most items but realize that heavy and/or bulky items will be very expensive to ship so we may note on an item that international shipping is not available.The most cost-effective means for shipping internationally is by U.S. Postal Service (either First Class or Priority International mail) but tracking is often unavailable for items sent this way. International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way. Should an item be lost in the mail, we will provide you with a copy of the U.S Customs form which is proof that we sent the item. The international buyer will be responsible for contacting their own country's customs/mail officials to trace a lost item's whereabouts. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY OF ITEMS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.

Also note that the international buyer is responsible for any duty or customs fees charged by your country.
