Inspired by Shaker, Arts & Crafts, and other popular styles, here's a new book of Traditional Box Projects that will appeal to a wide range of woodworkers.

It's not a book full of exacting reproductions for master craftsmen only - but more of a detailed guide to creating attainable interpretations of the most beautiful and enduring box designs.

Although most of the boxes are easy to build, there is a range of complexity to the projects you'll find - with a few challenging projects that will test your skills.

Here are just a few of the projects you'll discover.

  • Shaker lap box
  • Fumed oak humidor
  • Glass-tipped display case
  • Jewelry box with dovetailed drawers

By presenting each project with step-by-step instructions - and detailed photos - author Strother Purdy gives you all the advice you need to build these durable, functional boxes with precision. And he shares lots of inside secrets on how to add the final aesthetic touches to each piece.

You'll also discover some tried and true tips on how to avoid common pitfalls - plus some very creative alternative design and construction options.

If you've always wanted to try your hand at building these classic wooden boxes, here's a user-friendly guide that will walk you through a range of satisfying projects. And the next time you're searching for a unique gift, you can share a little part of yourself with one of these beautiful boxes.

Paperback, 160 pages, with 322 color photographs and 16 drawings

ISBN 978-1-60085-110-0
