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 Black Walnut and Quarter-Sawn White Oak Box

Recycled Black Walnut and Quarter-Sawn Oak Box
Latest addition to our online listings.  Entirely handmade using recycled woods.  The black walnut is from a tree the city took out of our neighborhood a few years ago and the quarter-sawn oak is from the local Habitat for Humanity.  I cut the panels to incorporate a very dramatic knot in the front which otherwise would have been thrown out.  This box is 6"x6"x8".
