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.

Latest Project - 10 Shadowboxes

Custom ShadowboxCurrently working on a batch of ten custom shadowboxes for a client. These are of oak and use a hidden handle in the top attached to a pane of clear acrylic for glazing.  They are designed to hang from the wall with a hidden french cleat.  Very clean and minimalist with nothing to distract from the display inside.  When the handle is slid down into place, it fits flush with the top edge and is almost invisible. The top photo is of one made and sold earlier and the bottom photo shows the progress on the current group.  Scheduled to be done in about a week.
