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.

Recycled Teak and Walnut Box

A box using recycled teak and walnut, along with maple. The sides are fabricated using contrasting sections of teak and maple, and the lid and bottom panel are of black walnut. I found the teak at a local business that re-purposes wood from demolished houses and the walnut is from a tree the city cut down in our neighborhood. The city forester was good enough to let me have a few sections of the tree as it came down.
