Craftsman Crate is our answer to a world that has very little to offer hands-on young people.

Our own teens came to us, telling us that there were absolutely no hands-on craft- or skill-based kits for older guys. We went out looking and found out they were right! We couldn’t find a thing, so we got together with our teen and adult kids and started developing some. We sold the first ones here on and people loved them, but they told us they wanted us to turn it into a subscription box service, so they could just have a new hobby delivered every month and keep their guys happy. Now we have teen guy subscribers, but also teen girls, elderly people, fathers and mothers!

Timeless Skills

Our grandparents were never idle. Their hands were always busy, creating things of beauty and practical use. They were craftsmen and artisans even in their hobbies. Those skills should not be lost to the world.

Real Tools

Our kits include real tools, real books, real supplies, not samples or disposables like so many subscription boxes. Our kits won’t just entertain you for a few hours, but will be there to refer to and enjoy again and again.

Complete Kits

We hate it when we buy a kit and it sits on the shelf while we try to remember to pick up the rest of what is needed from the store. Our aim is instead to give you everything you need to create your first new project right in the box – from lessons and detailed instructions to the smallest supply.

    We have absolutely LOVED our craftsman crate subscription! We have gotten a year’s worth of boxes and continue to be impressed. They are well thought out, easy to follow, and my son now has his own collection of real tools and art supplies. We highly recommend these.

    These subscription boxes aren’t your run-of-the-mill ‘read a bit, do a bit’ projects. They are in-depth, hands-on experiences. Since the subscription’s inception, we’ve done wood burning, wood carving, calligraphy, and metal working. This month, however – as you’ll see in the unboxing – got the “Coolest Kit Ever!” award. The boxes are designed to teach artisan skills, such as those your grandfather or great-grandfather would have learned, and it’s one of the best boxes for teens currently out there. Unboxing –

    We have been getting this subscription box since it started for our daughter. She enjoys them so much! They come with everything needed and are great to use with our homeschool.

    What a great way to encourage the growth of Hands-On skills. What surprised me the most was my daughter went after the chainmail kit! My almost 6 year old was eager to learn quilling. And I had to buy an extra supplies to make a second caned stool. These are a great way to unplug and learn skills that aren’t taught anymore. I couldn’t recommend them more.

      Let me recommend a GREAT box for children that age! It’s called our preschool life and it is WONDERFUL! It is run by our friends at Simply Charlotte Mason and it is top notch.

    I got a year of this for my 40yr old sister for Christmas. She *adores* it. Every month, I get to see her giddy as a kid telling me about the new crafts she gets to make, the techniques she gets to learn that she’s always been curious about, and her plans for what she’ll do with the projects to make them her own. This is a home run gift for anyone you know who likes to work with their hands! Couldn’t be happier!
