Step-by-step instructions and materials lists are given here for eight small decorative wooden boxes.
A simple lift-lid box with key-slotted mitered corners is followed by a rustic treasure box, a sliding-top pencil box, a stationery box with hidden splines, a lap-cornered box, a foldout jewellery box, a jewellery box with a sliding tray, and a dovetailed box with a wooden hinge.
Each uses progressively more challenging techniques and designs.
Color photographs accompany the text.

The DVD includes a discussion of wood considerations, common tools, shop jigs, finishing techniques, and hardware installation, and demonstrates how to cut the variety of joints used in Stowe's boxes.
