Box making is an ancient and honorable craft. Many boxes, whether simple or elegant, are passed from generation to generation.
Doug Stowe has condensed 28 years of woodworking experience into a well-organized manual on joined, turned and bandsawn boxes. He covers tools and jigs, wood choice and preparation, a number of approaches to joinery, lids and bases, interior drawers and lining, hardware selection and installation, making and installing decorative banding, and creating patterned surfaces with veneers. Each technique is explained with step-by-step color photographs and clear, concise text.
