Complimenting our range of wooden storage boxes, this Trug handmade by The Shepherd's Hut makes a useful present for anyone.
If you're looking for that useful present for Christmas, our pine wood trugs combine practicality with elegance.
Perfect for carrying flowers, cuttings, bulbs, trowels, seeds and gloves in and around the garden or home. Each trug is enhanced by our own period advertising graphic on one side, harking back to when times were simpler and easier.
Available for gardeners, handymen and hobbies. Please see the photographs for other examples.
We also make and sell our vintage style wooden advertising storage boxes which you can see elsewhere in our shop.
Each trug is made from 5 planks of solid wood and has a solid wooden handle running its length. Available in medium Oak stain
Each box is handmade out of pine planks exactly as the original boxes, distressed, then stained and waxed. Just like the victorian boxes there is a paper graphic on the front face of the box only. As the original boxes, we leave the inside of the crates rough wood. We endeavor to make these crates look original, rustic and vintage, indeed we've often had customers ask if they are old.
As they are made of real wood (not mdf) please allow for the defects in the wood, this adds greatly to the period look, we allow missing knots and small hairline cracks which don't effect the structural integritity of the crate.
To keep your box in its best condition, treat with a wax polish every now and then and keep out of direct sunlight.
H15 x W40 x D24
Please note that due to the size and the weight of our trugs, one third of the cost is courier postage and packing.
