We build mesquite jewelry boxes and numerous custom mesquite products in our shop with all box proceeds going to pay the expenses of our autistic grandson, Tyler.  We are not a large multiple person shop, only my wife and I, but we do turn out quality products.  We have established a product line that we call "Tyler Boxes". Tyler is our seventeen year old grandson.  At two years of age he was diagnosed with Autism, PDD/NOS.  If you are familiar with Autism you know it involves much specialized testing, special foods, speech treatments, occupational therapy, etc., all of which are very expensive.  We have established our website and mesquite product line, including "Tyler Boxes", in Tyler's honor.  All expenses; raw materials, labor, costs of manufacturing, etc., for these boxes are paid for by us with all the proceeds from the sale of the boxes going to Tyler's fund to help pay his Autism expenses.

Please note:  Due to a recent death in the family, Leaning Oak Mesquite Works is currently not accepting any new orders. At such a time when we are able to accept new orders, this website will be updated with a new message stating that we are once again accepting orders. Until that time, please do not email any orders, or call with any new orders. We will be unable to respond to emails or reply to voicemails. Thanks for your understanding during this difficult time.


Everything that you pay for your box will go to Tyler's expense fund, no exceptions.

Mesquite Box Products and Pricing

We build any size, square or rectangle, mesquite boxes each of which are suitable for jewelry, treasures, knick knacks, or just to admire.  Ever box is custom made, per your order. Each box is handmade, solid southwest kiln dried mesquite, with brass barrel hinges,  and are finished with three coats of hand rubbed tung oil.  All knot holes, cracks, worm holes, etc., will be filled with a clear epoxy resin.  The box can also be inlaid with pyrite (fools gold), blue lapis, fuchsite, or almost any combination of stone, as available.  Laser engraving is available at a minimal additional fee.  We sell all boxes at a cost of $1.50 per cubic inch, (length x width x height), with a minimum charge of $75.00.  You tell us what you want and we'll build it.

We have been building custom mesquite products for approximately seven years.  Our product line includes, along with numerous sizes and designs of boxes; kitchen islands, cigar humidors, computer tables, commode sets, art pedestals, desktop organizers, dining tables, display cubes and stands, picture frames, and crosses.  Some of our products are shown in the pictures above.  All of our products have the same fine quality as the boxes listed above.  They will be 100% kiln dried southwest mesquite, hand rubbed and finished inlaid with stones and epoxy resin.
