Handcrafted woodwork designed for use in storage and display. Boxes, cabinets, display cases and shadowboxes 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 via email (jmcraftworks@gmail.com) for a custom order and I’d be happy to help with an original design for a special one-of-a-kind handcrafted item, a custom ring box, coin display case & mount, or a keepsake box.

Shadowbox and Shelves

Latest commission is for a Shadow Box Display Case and 2 Display Shelves, all in matching dark oak. Here's photos of the set, finished on 05/27. I'm using some of my camera collection to show the scale of the shelves but the client will be using the 2 shelves & shadowbox to display a handmade chess set. This was a great project to work on and I used quarter-sawn oak with a dark arts & crafts finish. We're big fans of this style and love the look of everything about it.
