why this product

Designed by a former engineer in Madison, Wisconsin, these simple market boxes come with very distinctive details that lend them an heirloom-quality. The dovetail joinery (angled, interlocking boards) creates strong joints without the use of metal fasteners, and adds a subtle woodworking flair to the edges of the piece. Details extend to the very bottom of the box, as the lower panel is inset to create a raised panel base. To finish the market box, linseed oil is rubbed into the wood by hand. 

use & care

Keep away from moisture. Dust with soft cloth periodically. If desired, a beeswax or linseed oil furniture wax can be buffed in once every 1-5 years. Exposure to sunlight will change the color of the wood over time. This will not harm the integrity of the wood.

production & design

Following principals of the “Super Normal” as outlined by Jasper Morrison and Naoto Fukasawa, former MIT-trained engineer-turned-designer Jarrod Beglinger is inspired by everyday, humble objects and seeks to create items that are elegant in their simplicity. Born, raised and based in Wisconsin, Jarrod received an engineering degree from MIT and a master’s in design from Design Academy Eindhoven, Netherlands. After a five-year position for a leading bicycle manufacturer, Jarrod decided to pursue his interest in design and craftsmanship. For every item that he designs, Jarrod spends time creating several prototypes. After the prototypes are perfected, he then partners with local manufacturers and woodworkers to create the final product.
