SHEET 02 A5 ASSORTED CRATES PRE-1923

This kit comprises an A5 SHEET of printed text to reproduce 7 designs of packing crates, plus 147 PRE-LACQUERED BLOCKS of precision-cut solid maple, so sufficient blocks to use the whole sheet. The light covering of lacquer assists in the transfer of the image onto the wood surface.

 

All manner of goods were transported by rail in crates with the manufacturer's name and logo stamped on the front, or painted using a stencil. The text designs are inspired by, and loosely based on, prototype products with some modeller's licence. The labels are printed on high quality paper. The text is transferred onto a suitable block of wood of the same size by wetting with nail varnish remover (see below). The results in these photos speak for themselves. 

 

The kits are available either by messaging me through the Contact Page or through my Ebay listing number 283177168385. A kit costs £29.50 plus £3.50 post and packing. The text sheet is supplied flat in a ‘Do Not Bend’ envelope.
