About

We make cool boxes.

We design, cut and construct wood boxes (and a few other things!) with a laser cutter. Because we have the technology to make intricate and precise cuts, we are having big fun figuring out what is possible.

Laser cutters/engravers are often associated with engraving stuff on cheaply manufactured things. We think laser cutters are a tool for serious artists. Our boxes have won awards in juried art shows (see our website for details).

We don't tolerate laser smoked wood or careless finishing. We sand all of our hard wood creations until they are smooth with soft edges. You can see the grain of the raw material and feel the warmth of the wood in your hands. We use high quality, sustainably harvested woods that give each piece a unique character.

All of our work is original. We don't use clip art or plans from the internet. What we do is sort of like traditional printing methods. We can produce a series of objects. Some of our work is done as specifically limited editions. Some times our work is like mono-printing -- we use the same template but choose different woods or finishing techniques to create related but not identical objects in much the same way that you could hand color an etching to create a unique print.

Our Materials

We love wood. Wood is a renewable resource. It gives our creations personality and natural beauty.

We also love forests. It is difficult as a very small business to get provenance for the wood we use. We do go to some lengths to ‘not buy’ wood that might come from endangered trees or endangered woodlands. We check all the wood we use against the CITES Appendices and the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders

We enjoy doing custom work from a single personalized box to mark an important occasion, to hundreds for your own new product line or wedding party. We have a number of basic designs that we can customize and many may be surprisingly affordable. Or we can design a completely original box for you! Feel free to inquire.

IMPORTANT! We only manufacture our own custom designs. In most instances we will not cut any designs from clip art or art work without a release from the copyright holder. If you are an artist or craftsperson that needs laser cutting for your own work, there are a number of companies such as Ponoko that specialize in this service. They will cut your work faster then our two person shop can.

Wholesale

If your are interested in carrying our work contact us. We will only take on a new customer if we are certain we can provide exceptional service.
