Overview

Create, shape and finish boxes with beautiful results

Making small boxes is a favorite project for many woodworkers. While it may seem a simple process, there are many ways to build a box -- and in this comprehensive pictorial reference, veteran woodworker Doug Stowe covers all the techniques you will need to produce boxes you'll be proud of.

You'll learn about making boxes by using traditional carcase joinery or by shaping on the bandsaw or lathe. Stowe also covers special boxmaking techniques associated with making lids and bases, attaching them to the box, and partitioning boxes to hold small objects like jewelry. Additionally, there are a host of techniques for creating special effects that decorate a box, turning the small, useful object into a jewel itself.

This book covers all these methods in a highly visual format that has become the hallmark of the Complete Illustrated Guide series: Everything is covered in over 500 step-by-step photos accompanied with straightforward text.

Good overview, but lacks details

Doug Posted June 19, 2014
Book provided a great survey of box building techniques and styles, but lacked details on design details and construction. Reading gave me many great ideas for building boxes. Unfortunately, the book included few pragmatic box design guidelines such as proportions, wood thickness, or finishing and there was only limited discussion of how to glue up and assemble some of these boxes. Detail level was probably appropriate for experienced woodworkers, but those of us still learning appreciate these extra details.
