Art & Technicals of Box Making

Learn practical box-making techniques

This week-long explores the art and technical aspects of box making. You will grow your woodworking and power tool knowledge and learn skills that are great stepping stones to larger projects like casework and cabinetry.

In this hands-on class, you’ll learn and practice multiple box-making techniques, including design, carcass construction, re-sawing lumber, box joints, bevel cuts, and setting hinges and hardware. This class is as much a technical skills course as a box-making one. 

You will also experiment with:

  • sliding, mortised, and hinged lids
  • keyed miters, finger joints, and rabbets
  • rabbeted and captured bottoms
  • Three and four-way grain matching
  • footed bases
  • the “architectural aspect” of boxes

Throughout the week, you will hone your skills, learn to use power tools safely, and design and build three to four boxes

Remember, the goal of this course is quality, not quantity. The designs, joinery, and construction methods learned in this class can also be applied to your future woodworking projects. 🙂

Learning to design and build boxes are a great stepping stone into casework and cabinetry. We encourage students interested in classes like case-making to take this box-making course beforehand. 

We also recommend that you attend the Beginning Woodwork class or are familiar with and comfortable with power tools before you attend this class.
