I was thoroughly impressed by my order! It was handled speedily, and the customer service truly is top notch! I will be ordering again.
Excellent product and customer service! The follow up with artwork review and shipping details was something you don’t often get with online retail. An A+ all the way around. Can’t wait to gift these crates to customers for Christmas!

About Carpenter Core
Carpenter Core was founded by Alan Derrick, a skilled artisan with an eye for timeless old-world craftsmanship and personalized customer service. Following years of experience in the arts, home furnishings, and construction trades, he noticed how corporate clients loved using old-style wooden crates and boxes as containers for gift giving and product packaging. They seemed to appreciate how each one was handcrafted in the USA from locally sourced timber elevating their brand image. Online ordering was added as a way to make purchasing and fulfillment a quick and easy process.
