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.

8 Small Shadowboxes for Charms

One of the more interesting projects I've taken on recently was for a series of  8 tiny shadowboxes, each to display a special charm.  I used a variety of fine hardwoods, birds-eye maple, oak, cherry, walnut, and each had a small brass eyelet to hang a charm inside. The boxes had glass for glazing both on the front & back and the front frame was held in place with inset magnets, hidden when closed.
