Beautiful Boxes

    By

    This book offers a collection of eight beautiful wooden box projects from one of America's premier box makers. Quick to build and only requiring a small amount of material; ideal for beginner woodworkers. Ranging in function and design, distinctive pieces make the perfect gift. Making wooden boxes is one of the best ways to develop overall proficiency in woodworking. Boxes are relatively quick to build, require only a small amount of material, and can be made in the smallest of woodshops. And, of course, they make wonderful gifts! In this all-new collection of boxes from one of America's premier box makers, Doug Stowe shows how to design and build eight distinctive boxes, ranging from a Greene & Greene-style jewellery box to a "letter box" with a sloping lid. Each box illustrates a key design principle such as harmony, rhythm, texture, or contrast, and includes one or two design variations.
