Announcement    Hello!
Thank you for visiting our shop of individual items in wood. All our boxes have taken many hours to complete and are of high standard, finished well and to be treasured for years to come. If you are looking for bandsaw boxes, do compare sizes and quality as others may differ considerably. We sell only within the UK, so sorry if this is a problem for you, but call me to discuss if you wish and maybe I can try to please.

Many of our past designs are on our Web Site, http://www.badgerwoodcrafters.co.uk and if you request one of those designs, it would be slightly different with colour of the wood selection and no two boxes are ever exactly the same. If you like a particular design of box shown on the Web, then please contact us to discuss this.

We enjoy a challenge, so if you would like a box that is deeper, taller, wider or have more drawers, just let us know. A recent request was for a house keys box for the family, larger than normal, to use when arriving home to save all that messy jumble of keys to look at.

About BadgerBandsawBoxes

Sales 48
On Etsy since 2014

A Father & Son workshop

Hello, my name is Malcolm. When I retired some 6 years ago, I initially spent time with photography as a hobby, but in 2013, my son Mark, asked for a woodworking Router for a Christmas present. I knew nothing about that so off I went to find out what I could and managed to find one for him.

One of Mark's friends had a relative who had retired from carpentry and wanted to dispose of his tools and equipment. Among these were a scroll saw, a bandsaw, a morticer and various other tools, which we agreed to buy. This was the start of our home workshop and for me a return to woodworking after some 40 years.

The bandsaw was fascinating. It was something that was about 40 years old and as I later found, did not work so well. That was a challenge and I started to study all about bandsaws and how they work. What makes them run well and what they could do if they were properly maintained. I read books, saw dozens of videos and over time, bandsaws became a subject that I can now say I do understand well enough to help others when asked.

Whilst I had the time to study, Mark had his career and very little spare time, but he made some wonderful boxes that have been sold. We share our knowledge and ideas to create rather unique boxes that seem to please people who appreciate our skills. Some of these are ideal for gentlemen with their cufflinks watches, rings and bracelets and the majority for the ladies with their jewellery, trinkets and keepsakes and these boxes can last a lifetime and be passed down in the family.

The name Badger Woodcrafters came about because Mark had the nickname of 'Badger' for some time, so we used that. We really enjoy making the 'secret' drawers in some of these boxes as it is very popular to hide those 'special' items.

Although only a 'hobby business' here in the UK we started to sell our boxes in October 2014 and are pleased how many people have appreciated the uniqueness and quality of our work and are selling more each year. We continue to generate new ideas for designs, with various themes, so keep watching for updates.

We enjoy sharing the knowledge we have built up with those just starting out, as it can be very difficult to learn all that is needed to reach the high standard required and many new to woodworking have tried and just given up.

We would love to hear from you by e-mail, a phone call or a comment on any of our sites and will always reply as soon as we can. If you wish to visit our workshop to look at boxes we have finished or are preparing, then please contact us.

If anyone would like to discuss individual requirements, perhaps a particular theme for a special gift, you only have to ask and we can discuss what is needed.

Best wishes to you all and thank you for looking at our shop.
