There is so much to a box it’s hard to put it all down. I’m by no means among the greats here, but I do love making boxes.
To me its about the overall look of the box. I try not to get too technical about the construction unless I’m doing it to beautify the box. I think every box should be something unique and classy, not the same old box everyone makes. I like to mix up the wood. I haven’t been too good with hardware, but once I find a good place to get a variety of hinges I will beef that up. I’ve made a couple cedar boxes so far which are on my page if you look.

A box can fit anywhere and has uses. That makes it a good thing to make and sell.
I have one on the bench now that is using padauk, walnut, and red oak. Can’t wait to get to it today.
