This 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 class demonstrations as well as individual consultation, Marc will lead the cutting and pressing of the veneer and Doug will lead the construction of the box. Together they will guide students through the entire process from design to finish using a combination of hand tools and machine work. Doug will start the week off with a discussion of the practical aesthetics of box design and will provide an overview of techniques, including selecting and preparing stock, joinery, precision milling of multiple parts, assembling, sanding and finishing.
