The small box is an ideal project to introduce intricate veneer work while developing fine box making techniques. Students will build a small box using a veneered pattern of their own design that seamlessly wraps down and around the sides of the box. Using both class demonstrations as well as individual consultation, Adrian will assist students through the entire process from design to finish using a combination of hand tools and machine work. He will start the week off with a discussion of the practical aesthetics of box design and will provide an overview of techniques, including selection and preparation of stock, joinery, precision milling of multiple parts, assembly, sanding, and finishing. Students will need to bring their own hardware. A list will be sent of resources.
