BurlWoodBox - Handmade Wood Jewelry Boxes since 1989

Ann Arbor, Michigan

Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    Welcome to our Etsy Shop ! Our boxes are band saw boxes, that means they are cut from a single, solid block of wood. We use walnut, cherry and mahogany for our base woods. The boxes are embellished with slices, not veneers, of burls or other highly figured woods. Our boxes have a hand-rubbed tung oil finish and are completely lined. We also use Purple Heart for some of our smaller boxes.

Burl prices, when available, have skyrocketed. Buckeye burl especially hence the price increase. We may not be purchasing any more even it available. Just another reason in the ever growing list of "time to retire".

Just a warning here.....these old boxmakers are preparing to retire soon. We shall try and keep our shop filled with our smaller boxes but will probably not be making any larger pieces. We will no longer be making boxes with drawers or trays. When they are gone...they are gone. We are not accepting custom orders.

We, Al and I, have been making our modified band saws boxes since 1989. We attend major Art Fairs throughout the year as well as our website. We have won numerous awards for our boxes as they are not your typical band saw boxes. A very high degree of skill is required for all the various levels in our larger jewelry boxes.

Should an item disappear from our Etsy Shop without being sold it means that it sold on the website or from our workshop.

We also have our own website that you can visit http://www.burlwoodboxstore.com/

Hooked on Boxes and Burls !

It just happened ! And soon it may end soon as the"box people" are cutting back and preparing to retire.

Well over 35 years ago it all started with a table saw in a duplex basement. Next thing you know our friends wanted one of whatever crude item of sliced wood we made. Huh? We were shocked ! So we tried a few local craft fairs. Success....!!!!

Long story short, we started making boxes exclusively about 30 years ago. Our skills, tools and location have all changed drastically since the crude beginnings. We have been a full time box only business for over 30 years.

We have many repeat customers or "collectors" as we like to call them. We attend fewer than 10 high quality art fairs per year now as we are getting older. We have won numerous awards for our boxes over the years.

Thanks for visiting our Box Shop BurlWoodBox on Etsy :)
