American Shine Co. started in our basement shop when we drew up a sketch for a box that would make it really easy to shine your own shoes. Self-proclaimed handymen without any real woodworking experience...how hard could it be to make a box? Turns out, pretty hard! It took over a year of trial and error before we had a box that we were proud to call our own. Today we’ve made thousands of shine boxes and shipped all over the world - each with it’s own personality. We now work out of a larger shop with bigger tools, but every shine box is still 100% handmade, finished, and packaged by us.
