Synopsis: Hone Your Woodworking Skills One Box at a Time

When it comes to great woodworking projects, it's hard to beat boxes. Using a minimal amount of materials, you can craft wonderful gifts or items for sale. And it's a great opportunity to use those pieces of special wood you've been hoarding.

The real trick to successful box-making is coming up with the right designs. If you've been looking for attractive box projects that suit your particular tools and abilities, you've picked the right book. In these pages, you'll find plans for 21 delightful boxes along with step-by-step instructions for making them. They include lovely, simple creations that a novice can make with just a few hand tools, all the way through designs with drawers and dovetail joinery that will provide experienced woodworkers with an exciting challenge.

Regardless of your woodworking experience, building these boxes provides a world of fun and the opportunity to develop new skills. In the process, you'll become a better woodworker—bit by bit, and box by box.
