Box Making


This is a four day (9am – 5pm) project based class and addresses a multitude of box making techniques including:

  • Design (lids, bases, grain wrapping, surface embellishment)
  • Carcass construction
  • Resawing Lumber
  • Joinery (mitres, lock mitres, splined mitres, box joints, dovetails)
  • Bevel cuts
  • Hardware – selecting and setting hinges, handles, locks

Student are welcome to exercise creativity in their designs while recognizing time and sizing constraints (max 15″ in any two directions).  Pre designed plans also available.  The goal is complete the construction and sanding of the piece and prepare it for finishing outside of the class.

Students who have only taken the 2 Custom Wood Boxday Beginning Woodworking class are required to take this class as part of their Masters Program.

Building small boxes is a precursor to building larger boxes such as cabinets and chest of drawers.  It is a great way to build your skill set in a compact manner.

Materials:  The School provided materials include – Cherry, Maple, Walnut, Nogal, Poplar, Sapele.   If you are bringing your own lumber no exotics, salvage, high resin (eg Pine) allowed.

NOTE:  Everyone who attend must have completed our Introduction to Power Tools  class regardless of experience.  Recent graduates of the Beginning Woodworking class will be exempt from this.
