White Pine Wooden Hand Made Box with Butt Joints and Dowels

Course Description

This course is a great introduction to making wooden boxes. It doesn’t require you to learn any challenging or fancy joints, you don’t need to break out the router, and it can be done with just a few simple tools. 

It’s also a nice way to get comfortable using hand tools to really dial things in and do some shaping. We’ll go over using a plane to fine tune surfaces in detail – a great skill to have that you’ll use repeatedly when making boxes. We’ll also use a makeshift rasp to carve out a finger lift that’s both attractive and useful. 

All box parts are pre-cut and shipped to you by the instructor, that way we can spend our time focused solely on joinery and box making. This is a great course for people with limited tools and/or space – a kitchen table with a makeshift vise is totally sufficient!
