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.

17 Boxes

17 Boxes - An order just finished for a client who wanted a series of boxes that she could give to family members this Christmas. Each the same size but made from a variety of woods, including: walnut; oak; maple; mahogany; cherry; poplar. Finished with an eco-friendly water-based polyurethane. The lids are hinged with solid brass pins inset into the sides of the lids. This allows the lid panel to float within the top edges of the box and eliminates any hinge hardware for a clean appearance.
