I was hoping to have the book in time for the eMag (which just went out this week) but crossing the border always causes extended delays… but when I checked the mail box today, there it was. And oh what a fantastic book it is!

Filled with lots of step-by-step instructions and photos, the reader is not only guided through making a box, a beautiful box, but also through using the lathe to make feet for the box, veneering and inlays, marquetry, carving, and …well, it seems like the list is endless!

The Artist’s Sketch Box had me longing to be an artist… oh how wonderful it would be to open up the box and bring out my tools. And to have made the box myself (or, more likely, to have had it built specially for me), well, would leave me sitting in awe and probably not picking up a pencil.

Back to the book, I am in awe of the wealth of information included in the book—beyond what I would expect in a book about box-making. Extraordinary, beautiful, true craftsmanship and, on top of that, sharing of the woodworking skills and Wisdom to anyone who wants to learn!

This book is a treasure.
