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.

Pair of Knotty Maple Boxes

A pair of keepsake or friendship boxes. Handmade using Ambrosia Maple and Black Walnut with lift off lids. The maple is a very dramatic wood with highlighted patterns swirling throughout and contrasts nicely with the dark walnut. This would be a nice set for a couple to use, one as a small jewelry box and one as a man's valet.
