Product Description

Look Inside the Book

Author: David M. Freedman
In this book, writer and woodworker David Freedman shares the box-making techniques he's developed and perfected over the years. Accompanying his techniques are detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to make 16 handsome boxes. In addition to David's designs, there are also selected projects from a number of professional box makers.

The book begins with the fundamentals of box making: the elements of good design, wood selection and preparation, and finishing. The basics are followed by tips and techniques on cutting, gluing, and reinforcing joints, decorating lids, and installing hinges.

In later chapters you'll learn more sophisticated techniques, such as making spectacular bookmatched lid panels, sprucing up the interiors with lining, dividers, and trays, using frame-and-panel lid construction, dovetails, and finger joints, and dealing with specialty hardware.

Whether you're a beginning woodworker or an accomplished box maker searching for design ideas, you'll find this book comprehensive, easy to follow, and full of inspiration.
