The woodworking skills needed to create a simple box are the foundation of case construction, the area of furniture making concerned with storage. Add a lid to a box and you have a chest; add doors and it becomes a cabinet. A chest of drawers consists of boxes within a box. Nick shows how to use simple box-making techniques to create dozens of elegant storage pieces, as well as small decorative boxes. There are jigs for making corner joints, a discussion of box hardware, suggestions for creating hidden compartments, plus plans for a Keeping Box, Shaker-inspired Chest of Drawers, an Apothecary Chest, and more. 128 pages, over 300 illustrations and photos in PDF format.
