Libraries Made from Eatmor
Where do we find 500 Eatmor quarter barrel boxes? The story starts with a long day in the Amish countryside of western Wisconsin near Cashton. Todd Bol and carpenter Henry Miller were visiting farms and backwoods salvage yards when they came upon a mountain of these little crates just waiting for a re-purpose. We're still looking for more. The Mini Libraries above are painted for indoor display (full of books, of course) child care centers, kids' rooms, pediatricians' offices and pre-schools. Double Wide Cranberry Crate Little Libraries (whew! That's a mouthful!), are attractively stained to fit in, say, a family room, study or casual area of an office. These 30-50 year old boxes show the hard-earned charm of decades of use.
A Touch of Americana
Want something historical, attractive, and ideal for a gift? If you are on a budget and want an eye-catching shelf for your best books, this is it. Our intrepid team of backwoods scouts have found more than 500 old (30-50 years old, we hear) cranberry crates that just fit the bill.
These nifty little box-bookshelves will charm your guests and hold just enough volumes to encourage you to keep your reading glasses nearby. The unique look comes from decades of use in central and southern Wisconsin. Scrubbed, repaired and refinished by Amish and volunteer craftsmen, these touches of Americana have weathered many a winter.
