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.

Another Variation on the Coin Display

Instead of glazing on front and back, this client wanted a solid walnut background and the case was designed to hang on the wall. A recessed french cleat was added in the back and with the cleat, it could be easily hung on a wall for display. This was for a single coin from Artifacts and the size was 4" square x 2" deep. The front frame attaches with hidden magnets and opens the case so the coin can be positioned in the mount. And the removable frame houses the glazing, a thin sheet of framing glass. The coin in the photos is mine and used because it was close to the size of the client's coin, a silver 4 Reales and I used it as a stand-in to design the coin mount.
