  1. "Secrets" Puzzle Box

    I became interested in making boxes, and after reading the book "Puzzle Boxes" by Jeff Vollmer, I practiced his techniques for a time. After upgrading my 14" Delta band saw with the Carter "stabilizer, I was better able to make the tight turns necessary to create this box following Jeff's...
  2. Pill Box

    Pill Box Working really small is a way to challenge your skills and build your attention to detail. Small mistakes will show up in a really big way. This little pill box is 2" wide, 1 1/4" deep, and 1" tall I'm not sure what species it is, but I know it's a Brazilian hardwood. The liner is...
  3. Miter spline sled

    I made this miter spline sled for cutting splines on boxes. I think it will work well on picture frames but have not used it in that way thus far. https://youtube.com/channel/UCSyk1Df3CdsHEBKX1KlCnjw
  4. Stanley 71 Router Plane Box from Pine & Meranti

    I made this box last year after I got my Stanley 71 router plane from ebay and restored it a little. I was just getting into box making at this time, but I did spend a lot of time on this box to get everything right. I actually made a box for the router plane before this but screwed up the...
  5. Miter Spline Jig for Table Saw Crosscut Sled

    After several years of woodworking, I just purchased my first table saw (Porter Cable PCB220). There's a lot you can do without one if you get creative (although it makes most of those things SO much easier), but miter splines were one of those things I could never improvise my way around. The...
  6. Pine Box

    Happy new year everyone! Here is my latest creation. It's just a simple box made out of pine scraps from my recent shop clean up. The box is 5"x5" and the lid is 6"x6". Joinery is miters with the bottom dadoed in. The lid has a thin piece underneath that fits inside the box. Everything was...
  7. sculpted keepsake boxes

    Early this year, i finally got around to making some of these boxes. I have seen several throughout the years and have always been intrigued by them. I want to give a shout out to Andy, his boxes got me interested in this process years ago. When covid hit, and our usual activities were...

    A small selection of boxes I finished this week with many more to come. 1st is silky oak and jarrah lid. 2nd is scented maple and light blackwood lid. 3rd is huon pine with walnut lid. 4th is camphor laurel. Last two pics show two of the boxes closed… And a couple of photos of the rosewood tea...
  9. Segmented Celtic Double Knot

    After my last segmented pen, I thought this might be a cool design. I had a little discussion with my friend Gary about the wood species to use and this is what came of it. The base wood of the pen is Sapele. The knot is created with 32 pieces of Maple and Cherry (16 of each). The finish is...

  10. Cherry and Walnut Jewelry Box

    I have a couple of stacks of "future box lids" in the shop. These are usually unique pieces I've come across. Unique figure, color, or perhaps a smaller piece I resawed and book matched. Anyway, this small, great piece of Walnut was given me a couple of years ago by the owner of a Don's Home...
  11. Tree of Life Scroll Saw Box Tiger Maple and Black Walnut

    I decided to do a little something different and took a stab at making a box with the scroll saw. I am still pretty inexperienced with the machine so this project was a good learning experience for me. The Tree of Life pattern is from a book by author Diana Thompson. Few modifications on my part...
  12. Mystery cube box

    I made this 6"x 6" x 6" basswood cube for a customer. We exchanged a lot of emails before I was sure to build it the way he wanted. This video helped my get an idea as to what he planned to do with it - YouTube One of the more unique boxes I've ever made :-)
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum and wanted to pick your minds for a problem that I've run into. I'm currently working on a rocking chair / bassinet combo. The two side walls of the bassinet have to be cut at a 14 degree angle so they are able to match up to the headboard. The problem that I...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm planning a small box build to give as a gift and got a router bit box set that includes a decorative profile bit for the sides of the box and a profile for decorative feet. I'm thinking I can glue up the sides of the box first, using miters at the corners, and then route the profile on the...

    Hey guys, I'm building an ambrosia maple and ebony humidor for one of my groomsmen and I've got a technique question. I've assembled the box, cut and glues the splines but have yet to cut the lid, should I seal it NOW since the inside will be unfinished? Or should I go about cutting the lid...

    Basic Box Making with Doug Stowe - a review I have watched this DVD about 5 times now. I will watch it another 5 times before Christmas. When it is all told, who knows how many times I will watch this. It's that good. I like to make boxes myself and I am continually trying to refine my...

    What to do, what to do OK you guys know by now that I am having to limit my woodworking to small hand tool stuff, if that. That's going to drive me nuts! I've thought that I would start doing some of my needle work with the idea of incorporating them into boxes, or other woodworking projects in...

    Box Making I recently decided to go on a box making journey in woodworking. The various skills that one can learn by making simple and small boxes and structures can lead to big improvements in skill while performing larger work later on. Plus, it's a good way to use up scraps that are laying...

    The Glue Up Table The Glue Up Table In my shop the most important element in efficiency is organization. That means having what I need at hand when I need it. In the case of the glue up table it starts with a straight line that I can put the sides of the box against to line them up for...
