BOXES FROM SCRAP LUMBER AND
HAND CRAFTED BY JOHN TEGELER



Small boxes of all types are my interest. Small boxes consisting of jewelry boxes, jigsaw puzzle boxes, band saw boxes, and many other types of small boxes that can be used for a wide variety of purposes are samples of the types I make. Many of my boxes are decorative in nature also. Most of my boxes are made from scrap lumber that other wood workers throw away such as cabinet manufactures and wood shops. The cut off ends and irregular pieces of all varieties of wood are what I will take and make special boxes out of them.

Each and every box is completely unique due to the wide variety of woods used, their grain patterns, and the box design itself. It’s interesting work and provides plenty of challenges and perspectives for me…

I like to make the boxes interactive also. Not only do I make the box appealing visually, but I try to create an interaction from the owner that requires some effort on their part to gain access into the box or parts of the box.

Many of my boxes are puzzle boxes that require taking apart and reassembling back into the box. Some are shuffle puzzle boxes that require arrangement of tiles in certain order. And then there are just beautiful boxes that are used for jewelry, collections, or whatever you want to put in them.
