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.

The latest in a running collaboration with a fused-glass artist. This is the first of a set of eleven boxes of various sizes & shapes that will be finished this September. The box is constructed from a beautiful oak burl that I sliced into panels to form the four sides of the box. The lid is made of walnut and the fused glass-work is approx. 5" x 8" and is inset in the lid. Beautiful design work used in the glass and the colors really make it pop.
