Tramp Art boxes collection
Tramp art is a style of woodworking which emerged in America the latter half of the nineteenth century. Some of tramp art’s defining characteristics include chip or notch carving, the reclaimation of cheap or available wood such as that from cigar boxes and shipping crates, the use of simple tools such as penknives, and the layering of materials into geometric shapes through glue or nails. One technique used in tramp art is Crown of Thorns joinery.
