Secrets of a master craftsman: Traditional Box Projects by Strother Purdy is inspiring and practical, offering trusted advice gained from years of experience. It's your guide to classic box making and includes tips, techniques, and insider secrets.

Enduring styles -- traditional techniques: Featuring Shaker, Arts & Crafts, and other popular styles, this user-friendly guide offers step-by-step instruction in constructing durable, functional boxes with precision. Plus, it also includes helpful advice on avoiding common pitfalls.

Thinking out of the box: Here, too, you'll find plenty of inspiration because this is not a book full of exacting reproductions. Instead, it shows how to create attainable interpretations of the most beautiful and enduring designs. So, now you can add your own custom touches to a classic box.

  • Fumed oak humidor
  • Glass-tipped display case
  • Jewelry box with dovetail drawers
