Announcement   Thanks for visiting Wood'n it be Nice. As you can see, my passion is making wooden boxes. I've been doing this since about 1999, and by my estimate, have produced just over 4,000 pieces since then. That said, I am still learning. That's what is so neat about working with wood. There is always something new.
I pride myself on the quality of my work and on customer satisfaction. Hopefully you see that coming through in my reviews. Let me know how I can help you find the box you have been looking for. If it is not in my shop at the moment, we can talk about a custom piece.

About

"A workshop with living quarters"

That's what my wife says about our new home in Wisconsin. It's not really that bad, but after 20 years in Illinois, living in a nice 2-story colonial with a small workshop, there is some truth in there also. Living quarters were downsized a bit, and the shop space quadrupled!

After many years of the typical DIY woodworking around the house including three home additions, I wanted to continue working with wood, but in a more fun, creative way. Along came boxes. The smaller scale of boxes allows one to experiment with premium and exotic (read "expensive") woods without going broke quickly But after completing several dozen, then what? Market them, and that's what I been doing through 12 years of outdoor art fairs, and now the web.

After over 4,000 boxes built since 2001, I am still learning, challenged both by the many techniques I yet want to develop, and woods I want to try, but even more by the unique ideas and requests from my clients.

    I started making small keepsake and Jewelry boxes in the late 1990s. After 15 years and more than 4000 boxes,you could say I am hooked! To me a successful box displays esthetic design, beautiful woods, craftsmanship, and usefulness.

Returns and exchanges
I will refund in the event of damage on arrival. I require that the piece be returned to my, and will provide a FedEx return authorization to facilitate this.

My normal shipping method is FedEx ground. Posted shipping costs are for FedEx domestic, ground only. Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, and the territories, as well as expedited shipping will require additional cost. Please inquire for a firm quote. I do not ship outside of the U.S. at this time. Note: a phone number is required by FedEx. They use that should a signature be required or there are delivery issues. Please include yours if possible in the buyer comments when purchasing. Otherwise I end up putting my number in and that is not too helpful to you if there is a delivery problem.
