I have 2 empty footlockers both WWII era got one for $25 and the other for $30.

Well, my Texas buddy, let me know the next time you run across one of those easy deals. I`ve been searching for 2 months on CL and elsewhere. Maybe at Mullins next weekend.

These are some sweet displays. I can't get enough if them.

 

The best way to display the small items!

Great job on the build. I`ve been tempted to build one myself. I have a `62 vintage locker that is identical to the ww2 ones thatI have repainted the outside of to a more respectable ww2 color and then cut out my own stencil. I hate to repaint the inside and cover the orginal `62 stamps, though. I`m just about ready to show the top tray, I just lack a good ww2 soap dish and some pin ups. You wouldn`t happen to know a source for a good plastic soap dish? I keep watchin Ebay but " no soap" yet.

 

Thanks these are the specs my grandpa used if you want to give ita shot: http://www.hardscrab...ocker_crate.pdf

 

As for soap dishes did you see this? http://www.ebay.com/...=item2ec735c52d

 

And I found the easiest way to get pin-ups is to buy an old beat up cheap YANK magazine and tear out the pin-up so she can be seen ;)
