Box Challenge

A community challenge in box making, open to all!

Design and build a unique box of your own. Feel free to interpret ‘box’ as widely or narrowly as you like — all designs are welcome! The only requirement is that your box closes with a lid.

Submit your design on Instagram or Facebook from February 8th – February 29th with three photos for your chance to win first, second, or third place prizes.

Just tag your work with #ShaperBoxChallenge


First place: $1,000 Store Credit

In addition to fame and glory, we have three awesome prizes, beginning with first place receiving $1,000 coupon to use in the Shaper store.


Second place: Festool CT Midi

The Festool CT MIDI I is the perfect combination of power and portability. It features huge suction power inside of a machine that is compact enough to easily move and store.


Third place: Bessey Package

The 12-piece body clamp set consists of 4x body clamps, 2 adapters, a variable frame press, a clamp connection and 4 table clamps.

Craftsmanship and Execution

The quality of work is just as important as the design and functionality, so we’ll be checking out the craftsmanship of your entry.

Judging Criteria

Quality of Documentation

Take the time to document your project so others can come along for the ride. Take videos and photos of your process and the finished piece.
