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.

Second Prototype_Tiny Jewelry Display Case

JMCraftworks_Walnut Prototype_02_January 1, 2014_03
The final prototype of the little display case I designed for small jewelry items.  Again, with a glass insert in the top to allow viewing of the jewelry on display.  The small sets of magnets are the same as in my earlier ring boxes on Etsy and they allow the two halves to stay secure without any sort of hinging mechanism.  The glass is framer's glass and is held in place in a slot cut with a special thin table-saw blade.  This one measures 4 3/8" long x 1 1/8" wide.
