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.

A box designed for a local glass artist. One of a set of boxes that will have a glass mural inset into the lid. The lid is cut as a frame with a recessed center to house the glass art work. This box was designed around a very nice knot in a section of oak with beautiful patterns radiating out from the center. The front and back sides were resawn from one piece of wood and if you look through the knot in the front, you can see all the way through the box and out the back.
