Vintage Wooden Boxes from Bodine Electic
Beautiful Vintage Construction
These incredibly gorgeous wooden boxes are salvaged from the Bodine Electric Company in Chicago, Illinois. The boxes were used to hold parts during their years in the factory. Because they were used in such a heavy-duty environment, they were constructed quite ruggedly to survive harsh treatment.
The ends of the boxes are reinforced with attractive steel strapping that has been polished smooth over its decades of use in the factory. These boxes held up in the rough environment of the factory floor, which means they will have no problem surviving for several decades more in the comparatively mild garden environment.
