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.

Small Keepsake Box with Lift-off Lid

Small Handmade Keepsake Box with Removable Lid
Small handmade keepsake box using 3 woods. The box uses both birdseye maple and spalted maple for the sides & top and cherry for the bottom panel. Features a removable lid that lifts straight off. Protected with a light clear finish and assembled with interlocking joints.

It's worth mentioning that we don't use any CNC computer controlled cutters where software feeds coordinates that trace over wood. We use traditional hand and power woodworking tools and everything we make is completely hand crafted from scratch in our shop.
