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.

Walnut and Quarter-Sawn Oak Box

This just finished and ready to ship out, a container of black walnut with a beautiful piece of quarter-sawn oak for the lid. The lid shows the dramatic rays characteristic of this wood. This was a favorite of the arts & crafts furniture designers such as Gustav Stickley.
