Recently, I have been dealing with an addiction. My name is Pruette and I’m addicted to making boxes. I can’t say that I wasn’t warned in advance – but really, you can’t get addicted after making just one, can you?
Apparently, box making is like lays potato chip laced with “crack” to the typical woodworker; You can’t get by with one. In the past two weeks I’ve made 5 specific box making jigs (most of which can be found in Doug Stowe’s “Basic Box Making” by Taunton Press) and about 20 boxes.
Here are the only two with photos. On the left is a walnut box with finger joints. The box on the right is mitered with maple keys. Both have tops made from Ambrosia Maple.
The other thing you need to know about box making is that it leads to other addictions like craft fairs.
Pray for me…
