Leaning Oak Mesquite Works will be back in business as of April 1st, 2017. My wife, Claudette, passed away from lung cancer on May 24, 2016. We very much appreciate the letters, concerns, and wishes from all of you. Leaning Oaks Mesquite works now consist of Tyler Mezzell, our 18 year old autistic grandson, and myself. Tyler will graduate in May 2017 and receive his High School diploma. I can't begin to tell you how proud of him we are. Please read the website, as we have made several changes.

On April 1st 2017, we will begin to accept new orders on a first come, first served basis. We have set a minimum order limit of $75.00 per box. We will no longer build towards a certain date, such as Christmas, birthdays, etc. Instead, we will build off our order list, 5 boxes at a time as the orders were submitted. You can pay one half of all monies due up front if you wish, anytime during the building process, or prior to us shipping you your box. The choice is yours, but the box will only ship after the full payment is made.

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 Tyler and I, but we do turn out quality products.  We have established a product line that we call "Tyler Boxes". Tyler is our eighteen 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.

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. 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 for $20.00 per box.  We calculate the selling price of all our boxes by multiplying the length by the width by the height x $2.00. We have a minimum charge of $75.00 per box.  You tell us what you want and we'll build it.

Other Mesquite Products

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.
