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.

Knotty Maple and Mahogany Box

Just sold on our Etsy shop, this small box was made from discarded scraps. There's a large commercial wood shop here in town and they usually throw away anything with knots like these but we think they're beautiful. I sliced open the wood to show the knot off to its best advantage.
