If you’ve spent any time at all watching 60s Westerns, you probably remember our hero transporting a wagonload of nitroglycerin (what was it used for—mining?) in crates like this one over some treacherous mountain pass.

Back then, crates were always being loaded into wagons and stagecoaches it seemed. Crates of ammunition (this particular example contained “Loaded Paper Shot Shells” from the Western Cartridge Co.). Crates of whiskey. Crates of gold, bank deposits, and who-knows-what.

And every time somebody loaded crates into the back of a wagon, you knew one thing for sure. Trouble was a-comin’. An attack by bad guys, or Indians, or (more commonly) bad guys disguised as Indians, was only as far away as the next canyon.

Load crates. Expect ambush. A simple rule for simpler times.

Flash forward a few years, and presto! The perfect place to store your personal treasures. Books. Magazines. Waylon Jennings CDs. And, yes, even small ammunition—if you happen to have any lying about the house. Approximately 15.5" x 9".
