Our daily lives are full of boxes—some purely functional, others purely decorative, but most provide both beauty and a worthwhile purpose. There are many ways to make boxes; square, round, long, tall, turned or bandsawn. In the Box Builder's Handbook author A.J. Hamler presents some of the projects as introductions to specific box styles. Others are standalone projects, but most are an example of a box type, and as part of the project he offers tips and suggestions on how to use the project as a springboard to make additional boxes of this type. Follow the step-by-step instructions and diagrams to build the box of your choice, or build them all and learn a new skill with each new project. And as a bonus, every project in this book will make a great handmade gift for someone special.
