Currently working on a batch of ten custom shadowboxes for a client. These are of oak and use a hidden handle in the top attached to a pane of clear acrylic for glazing. They are designed to hang from the wall with a hidden french cleat. Very clean and minimalist with nothing to distract from the display inside. When the handle is slid down into place, it fits flush with the top edge and is almost invisible. The top photo is of one made and sold earlier and the bottom photo shows the progress on the current group. Scheduled to be done in about a week.

- Handcrafted woodwork designed for use in storage and display. Boxes, cabinets, display cases, shelves, shadowboxes, and custom framing to provide safe environments for collectibles and to help keep special items close at hand. Perfect for small places needing to combine style & storage. Everything listed on my site is completely handmade by me in my shop from scratch. I use mostly recycled & reclaimed wood for my creations and focus on domestic woods and avoid any endangered exotic woods. Please contact me for a custom order and I’d be happy to help with an original design for a special one-of-a-kind handcrafted item.

|Small handmade keepsake box using 3 woods. The box uses both birdseye maple and spalted maple for the sides & top and cherry for the bottom panel. Features a removable lid that lifts straight off. Protected with a light clear finish and assembled with interlocking joints.
It's worth mentioning that we don't use any CNC computer controlled cutters where software feeds coordinates that trace over wood. We use traditional hand and power woodworking tools and everything we make is completely hand crafted from scratch in our shop.

Group of 5 small keepsake boxes to list online. Using quarter-sawn oak, American cherry, black walnut, birds-eye maple, and wavy maple. The two boxes in the back also use lyptus, which is a sustainable alternative to mahogany and is grown on non-tropical certified plantations.

|The latest group of small keepsake boxes. These use clear maple, wavy or curly maple, and black walnut. All the wood is from the local Habitat for Humanity Resale shop. They carry a lot of scraps from building projects that can be recycled for a second life as useful objects.|
