Overview

A small box is an ideal woodworking project for anyone looking to gain skills and learn techniques. The reward is something elegant and functional that also makes a great gift. In this book, Dennis Zongker gives clear, step-by-step instructions for seven different projects (with variations), each designed to teach the reader skills that can be applied to a wide variety of box projects as well as to furniture and other woodworking projects.

The boxes featured are traditional in style, with a modern twist, and incorporate a rich variety of woodworking techniques from basic to advanced: wood selection, veneers, cutting, gluing, joinery (including elongated dovetail joints and lock miters), segmented turning, and routing inlays. Also included are detailed sections on carving and marquetry, which give these stylish boxes an elegant look that makes them stand out from the field.

This is a must have book they are very beautiful boxes! I think it is a great inspiration to me and can be for other woodworkers. It has very clear steps you can follow and the techniques can be used in any type of woodworking projects. It shows techniques, for inlay, banding, marquetry, joinery and turning so much more all wrapped up in one book. Kudos Mr Zongker
