Probably born in Nuremberg, Strongly influenced by Albrecht Dürer, in whose studio in Nuremberg he worked from c. 1503. His early woodcuts include illustrations for Ulrich Pinder's ‘Der beschlossen Gart des Rosenkrantz Maria’ (1505) and ‘Speculum passionis’ (1507). After Dürer left Nuremberg for Italy in 1505, Schäufelein was instructed to paint the altarpiece for Ober-St-Veit after Dürer's design. Probably worked with Hans Holbein the Elder in Augsburg during this period.
