About Richard and JoAnne DeMeules
Richard and JoAnne DeMeules have been making handcrafted hardwood boxes in the Northwest since 1977. Born and raised in Seattle, they both attended the University of Washington.

During the bicentennial, they traveled for 6 months throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Upon returning, they began working with wood, inspired by a marquetry master they had met on their travels. They made everything from cribbage boards to hourglasses and eventually developed a line of unique boxes.

In 1980, they moved out of the city to a log home that they built on 5 acres in Redmond, Washington, near what is now the Microsoft campus. After 40 years, Richard and JoAnne still enjoy their work and continue to develop new ideas and create one-of-a-kind treasures.
