Lumber Jocks and Guests,

Here is a WWII Foot Locker we modified for one of the Air Force professionals. It is the foot locker one of his grand fathers had while he served in the Army. The flag is from his other grand father who served in the Navy during WWII. The bottom and sides under the shelf is lined with cedar.

The customer installed the items in the foot locker and did a great job.

Hope you like it.

Great idea and nice results. I still have my dad’s old USMC footlocker (currently holding carving wood stash) in my shop.
