I've had my eye on the Scrapbox Workbox for quite some time now. I would love to get one but just don't have the extra money lying around right now. But I told my husband yesterday that I'm going to start putting some money aside each paycheck and eventually buy one. The area that I have all my scrapbooking/stamping stuff in right now is a complete disaster. I have a huge desk and 2 (6ft) tables that are covered with stuff plus stuff piled up along the floor. There's really no place to even craft. I have to push stuff aside to carve out a little spot to stamp.

Anyhow, just wondering if you bought yours from the original website, Amazon or maybe some other site?

I noticed on Amazon that for the Workbox, it's a difference price depending on which color you get. It looks like if you get the black or white beadboard it's $1495 where as if you get the knotty alder raised panel one it's $1695. Maybe I'm not reading it right but just wondering why the two different prices? Is it a different wood they use? Then I was taking a look at the Craftbox at $945. I know it's quite a bit smaller. Did you originally buy the Craftbox and now regret not getting the Workbox?

Any suggestions would be great!!!

I don't know anything about the craft box so I'm no help there, but it's not all that uncommon for different colors/finishes to have different prices especially with wood because when you paint it you can use ugly cheaper wood since none if it will show through.

I ordered a high chair the other day and it also had two price points depending on the color.

I have one and I love it. It might be the best scrapbook related thing I have ever bought. It is a lot of money but I feel like it was worth it to me. I didn't think that I would be able to fill it up but it almost is! I feel like if you are going to get one you would be disappointed with the smaller one if you can't get all of your things into it. I waited for a sale and need up getting mine from legacy scrapbooking I believe it was called. FYI if you call the company directly you can asked them if they have any scrtch and dent ones for a discounted price. I have heard of several people doing this and they say they can't even see where the damage was or it was really small. That might be an option to at least look into. I hope that helps!

another thing you might consider is that if you were to go the scratch and dent way, you could totally personalize it the way you want to match your decor by either repaiting or adding some some sort of desigin to the outside with stensiling... the list really goes on and on...

I got mine directly from them. They offered free shipping. I think I got the natural oak. I know that when I got it they were offering a deal on a couple of the colors that saved me over $200 compared to what I had planned.

Check them out on facebook, they will post there when the have scratch and dent models (or ones where the holes are slightly off in the corners).

Thanks so much. I'll have to look them up on Facebook. Do they normally have "sales"? I know Amazon has the white bead board one for like $1495. Not sure if I could find a cheaper one (unless it was a scratch & dent)

The only problem I have heard of with third party sellers is if you have a piece with any damage. I think in that case you have to go back through the retailer you purchased through first. Amazon itself is probably pretty trustworthy, but I needed a piece shipped for mine and they sent it overnight fed ex directly from the Scrapbox without any problems.


BTW, it's actually 1495 right now on the Original Scrapbox's website. It's free shipping too!

BTT because there's a coupon code for today (11/23) only...


Check it out here.


I already have one, so haven't verified the accuracy of the code, but it seems to be offered directly from the Original Scrapbox.
