February 22 - February 23 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm $485
schwarz tool box


Build a reproduction of an antique Japanese sliding-lid box using hand tools, carefully shaped finger joints and steel dome-head nails.

Based on a Japanese box found at an Australian tool sale in 2013, this chest is an excellent introduction to precision sawing and handplaning.

During this two-day class, you will make a simple sawing appliance that allows you to make the finger joints by hand and eye. You’ll also focus on tuning up your smoothing plane to leave a perfectly  polished finish, fit the lid so it has a nice sliding fit and chamfer the joints with a fine file.

When finished, the box is an excellent vessel for carrying your most treasured tools to future woodworking classes.
