I have been making boxes for some time now. I was thinking today about my views of boxes and box making and thought I would share my opinion of the wooden box and maybe someone will take something away from this.Boxes to me are the best examples of functional beauty.A box is a square object used to hide away your valuables and jewelry. That being said I only put trays and compartments inside a box unless the customer specify. I do this because why limit the function of the box to just jewelr...

I have been working on a pair of nightstands for a while now and I’ve been trying to sort out what stain to use on them. They are quartersawn white oak and reproduction Stickleys so I wanted a nice older look. I started digging around in magazines, books, online, etc… and I found some great resources – like Captain Skully's forum post. Unfortunately, viewing something over the net always makes it appear a bit “off” to me. So I decided that I needed to prototy...
I finally have the door looking more and more like a door. I’m sure I’m going about this bass-ackwards, but I’m beginning to feel happy about the results.I’ve gone from this: TO THIS for routing the profiles, I used Whiteside 6001 matched pair rail & stile bits. So next i will cut and assemble the box/carcase, so it will fit the glass shelves. Then I will trim down the door stiles to fit that size, with about 1/2” on both sides and the top as ...
So I’ve been working on this project since January. Its been a really fun and very educational experience. There have been lots of “firsts.” This semester I have been taking a Woodworking Class at my local community college. Although the class isn’t really geared toward any particular set of woodworking skills it has given me an opportunity to build a project under the supervision of a more “seasoned” woodworker. When the class began we were instruct...

I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...
