Although widespread use of wooden cigar boxes in the 1850s sparked involvement in tramp art, it was most prevalent during the Great depression Tramp art was made around the world but it prospered in the United States. Examples can be found in every state. The most common forms were the box and the frame and although there were no rules or patterns to lend commonality in the artists’ work there were objects made in every conceivable shape and size including full sized furniture and objects of whimsy.
Tramp art was a democratic art form made wherever the raw materials used in its construction were found. It appealed to men who might have made an important body of work such as ‘Sunflower’ artist John Martin Zubersky (active c. 1912 – 1920) or the wonderfully expressive wall pockets by John Zadzora (active circa 1910) but also to men who might have made one piece in their lifetime. It was easy to make and appealed to anyone who had a desire to take a pocketknife to wood.

TheCrown of Thorns(puzzle work) is a woodworkingtechnique of tramp artusing interlocking wooden pieces that are notched to intersect at right angles forming joints and self-supporting objects, objects that have a \"prickly and transparent quality. Common examples include wreath-shaped picture frames that look similar to Jesus\' crown of thorns.
