Building Boxes

Thanks for all the great comments! Congratulations to “Carpiodiem,” the winner of this book giveaway. Stay tuned for more exciting book giveaways and if you’re interested in a copy of “Build 25 Beautiful Boxes.” it is currently available at ShopWoodworking.com.


I recently completed a box project that I did as practice for hand-cutting dovetails (a new skill for me that I plan to use for a furniture build in the not too distant future). Personally I like to feel like I’m making something when I practice instead of just cutting and recutting on a practice board (though I did do a little bit of that as well before starting my box). But anyway, the point is building boxes is a great way to practice skills, try out new techniques and use up offcuts that you’ve been saving. One book I looked to while thinking about the box I wanted to make was Doug Stowe’s “Build 25 Beautiful Boxes.” It’s packed with some amazing projects: jewelry boxes, music boxes, boxes for pens and many other stunning designs. The book covers joinery techniques and offers helpful instructions for making inlay. Plus you’ll find an appendix filled with musings and advice on woodworking and creativity.

I have a copy of the book to give away. Simply post a comment below to enter. I’ll choose one winner at random (winner will be announced Monday 5/22). Good luck!

Oh and my dovetails? They turned out ok if you don’t look too closely.

    Looks good! Almost done with my shop remodel. Itching to start building things other then shop cabinets and stands.

  • BarryJ

    The dovetails look good. Most old boxes that were built for use had dovetails that were far from perfect. If you look around antique stores that deal in country type furniture, you will see that most of the dovetails had imperfections in them, even in exposed dovetailed chests.

  • austindeveau

    Nice looking box, Looks like a great book.

    I have some wormy chestnut from the house my father grew up in. With only two boards, I think a box would be a good project to turn the boards into keepsake.

  • Frank Ruggiero

  • Mostly Square

    I love the carved bird on the top of the box. My parents were both carvers and my mother was a painter. Together they made many beautiful birds, including many small broaches. I’ve always wondered how I could use the broaches (not a broach wearer). Now I know! Many thanks for that idea.

  • guitfiddle

    I have offcuts. Need to box.

    Lately, I’ve been trying to think inside the box.

  • jamesghansen

    Let build one of those boxes, please.

  • GuitarTech

    Recently finished my “10,000 hours” mastering the basic through-dovetail. Warned everyone that ‘boxes’ would be the gift de rigour for awhile. Half-blinds currently scare the bejezzus out of me.

  • Bodypeersur123

    I recently found out that I have a debilitating condition that could affect my future wooden box projects. It’s only a matter of time before this dreaded affliction takes its toll on me! It’s called Needaboxbookitis!!! Yes, so if you don’t hear anymore from me good luck to the winner!

  • tkb500

    Count me in. The book would be a great asset for me.

  • jboates

    Making boxes is my favorite form of small project woodworking. I’d live to add your book to my collection!!

    Count me in! Boxes are worthy goals in themselves, not just as practice for larger projects!

  • Hoeppr

    I have really enjoyed other Doug Stowe books.. this would be very helpful.

    It’s whether it works or not that really counts. Keep practicing, and you will get better.

  • cer2010

    Would be a wonderful book to follow for me to make some presents for my family and friends.

  • freebird730@yahoo.com

    Thank you for the giveaway. Would like to have this book for pointers on making boxes.

  • Quality605

    Always looking for ideas in box making. We make chests and boxes. All our small boxes are for ash memorials. Our boxes are different because they open and seal from the top, not the bottom.

  • mpadru

    Great give-away. I always save cut off pieces to try new techniques on. My last study project turned so well I gave it away as a well received gift. Thanks for your insight.

  • grbmds

    Each time I make a box it’s a great experience since, surprisingly, they are more difficult to make and require use of more creativity than larger projects. I always learn something or improve my skills.

  • larmola

    Nice.. keeping my fingers crossed….

  • WenShank

    As a fan of Doug Stowe’s blog, I’d love a copy of his most recent book!

    Nice box! Not sure if this link will work but here’s one of my twisted dovetail boxes: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153435953514252&set=pb.541984251.-2207520000.1495385896.&type=3&theater

    Just in time for my upcoming project!

  • Mikecurtin

    According to Wayne Gretzky, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. With that in mind, I’ll put my hat in the ring. 🙂 Your dovetails look good from what I can see.

  • Brian

    A wonderful way for a woodworker to hold memories for others; A small beautiful box to hold their memories. Nothing more personnel than a hand make memory box.

    I must REALLY need the book, because your work looks fantastic to me.

    Nice job!

  • Olemac

    Nice addition to my library…

  • lclick

    Fantastic book for starting up woodwork

  • Natey49

    Glad I can find some use for my cut offs and leftovers. I would love to try out the techniques in this book.

  • Doc Wilson

    Regarding your dovetails, my wife is a quilter and their expression is “If they can’t see it from a galloping horse, it doesn’t matter.” Not quite my philosophy, but a good reminder when you start to get too fussy.

  • ironroom

    Just recently retired and have occasionally done woodworking over the years. I want to do more now and had thought that making a variety of boxes would be a good start. It would help me develop my skills and I could use scrap wood that I already have. This book would be really helpful.

  • mrparkinson51

    Hoping to win the book but best of luck to all that enter!

  • wellsy1959

    Great idea to use a small project as practice! I’d love to see the box projects. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Great way to polish skills and make better habits! Thank you.

  • lgudeth

    Boxes are a great way to learn old and new tricks of woodworking especially with that many kind of different boxes to choose from.

  • ChrisB

    If those are your first attempt at dovetails (scrap practice aside) I look forward to seeing your main project on here 🙂

  • harleyboy77

    I would love this book on box making for I have been trying to find one that would help me build boxes to hold essential oils. Thankyou for this opportunity.

  • Wood-n-things

    I love making boxes. It allows me to use some beautiful wood that would otherwise be thrown away. There are so many styles and ways of making boxes that it never gets boring.

  • smithdw2026

    Looks like these would be fun to make and be useful also. Thank you for the giveaway.

  • ChrisA

    Great project ideas. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    Appears to be a valuable resource for beginners and journeymen alike.

  • don2227@aol.com

    I had been planning to build the retirement home for myself and my wife in Cazenovia (near Syracuse) starting this spring. I have spent years collecting tools and learning to use them. 8 1/2 months ago my wife was diagnosed with a rare Leukemia. We put our current house on the market and moved to Buffalo, where our doctor in Syracuse told us we would have a better chance of survival at the Roswell Cancer Center. I recently brought many of my tools to my nephews house, where he had ample room in his garage. I now live in an apartment, with few real projects to do. I would love to build some boxes. I would love to have this book for instruction, to learn to properly build these boxes. Thank you for considering this e-mail.

  • osuopus

    A new skill is always good to learn.

    I would really like to try making some boxes. This would be great inspiration!

  • wanderlustjake

    Thank you for doing the giveaway. Please enter my name.

  • Bob

    I’ve never made a box. I planned on making one for my Mom, but I didn’t get it done in time. Now, I want to make one for my sister. Dovetails have stopped me every time. Maybe now?

  • BigBird0000

    Looks like some interesting boxes.
    I’d love to have this book!

  • brummettm58

    I struggled with dovetails and resorted to using the Porter Cable jig. I’d love to know more since building a completely true square box is one of the hardest challenges.

  • ceagent@fidnet.com

    Just started making boxes for gifts and could use all the ideas and hints I can get. Would like it to add to my meager library of woodworking books.

  • CoffeeGuy

    Thanks for this cool giveaway!

  • waffleiron

    Looks like a good book for some sewing boxes for the wife.

  • michael ford

    after almost 50 years of woodworking i could use your book. thank you

  • Celadon

    Enjoyed reading spopham’s comments. Similarly, my Dad had a shop when I was young. He was so meticulous and had a world of patience. I still have a cherry slipper rocker and wormy chestnut cabinet he made. After making my first box a few year’s ago, I have built many more. There is a lot of technique in these small treasures. I like reading about new box designs and shapes.

  • vtxmanmike

    One book I’d like to add to my collection!

  • Deycart

    If this is your first project with hand cut dovetails, they look amazing compared to my first one. I think I managed to split half my boards.
    I’m sure you’re aware of a few tricks to fix some of the mistakes, but for others who may read this, my favorite is to glue little chips the spaces.
    For example, if you have a pin that is too narrow, you can gently glue and tap a small chip of wood in the hole. After it dries, pare it down and this repair is invisible. The only issue is getting glue in the end grain, so you may want to plane the whole side to insure it doesn’t interfere with the finish.

  • bobby

    Beautiful box! Would love to learn how from this book!

  • lssmo

    sounds like a good plan.

  • edecker

    You may have pushed me over the edge. For a long time now I’ve been tempted to attempt hand-cut dovetails. I hope I can do as well as you. Thanks for the chance to own another of Doug Stowe’s books. He’s one of the greatest and so are his books.

  • MegMO

    I just started thinking about making a jewelry box and a valet box as wedding presents for two amazing folks getting married in the fall. I love the boxes you made. The book would come in handy since I want to make something with joinery that is uniquely different than the run-of-the-mill common box. I’m also considering making them ring boxes. Thanks for sharing!

  • hollyshell24

    I am trying to learn dovetails I have 10 bft tiger maple I’m going to use to make a nice little tool box when I finally get the hang of cutting dovetails, looks like there’s some beautiful boxes in this book. I’d love to get it to get some inspiration for my projects. Nothing like a great woodworking book

  • LongLook

    I use your earlier books as inspiration for my designs. Looking forward to this one.

    • jimmatplay

      Inspiration and guidance for future projects.

    Nice! Would love to have it.

  • penguinsfan1963

    Looks like a very good book. I’m always interested in learning new ways to make anything. Best of luck to all that enter for the book.

  • ThePapaJohn

    Does the book walk one through the dove tail making process?

  • ljkish

    My son made a beautiful box for me while he was in high school (It won a prize in the fair). Maybe this would entice him to make another one.

  • Tgtwinkie

    This is the perfect reference guide for me. The dovetails in the pic are very well done; mine aren’t nearly as neat. I can make a wealth of gifts and storage boxes with this book. I hope you choose me. Thank you for such a generous giveaway.

  • tonlan

    Hello Doug,
    Still in the beginning stages of making boxes, I made a couple of boxes in the style of Peter Follansbee and it is time to make different boxes in your style.

  • ekb

    I’ve admired your books in the past , and would love to create one of your designs myself. Thanks for the book give-away.

    Beautiful work! This would be a great incentive to practice dovetails myself…

  • Tyranny1

    WOW, as a beginner woodworker I am always looking for tips, tricks and instructions. I have tried making boxes with mitered corners (failed). I think I now own stock in Wood Putty, as it is mt fix for most mistakes. This book seems to have the information I need to finally succeed.

  • drthlucas

    Looks good, I’ll give it a shot

  • cougarboy04

  • spopham

    Two of my favorite things combined, Woodworking and boxes. Woodworking has always been something that I have enjoyed. I learned at a young age watching my father build and create things out of wood. I took shop in highschool, but after that it was time to enter the world of adulthood and earn a living. Now that I am established in my career and have spare time, I have entered back into the world where time seems to not exist while in the shop. I love creating! And as a small child I have always been a fan of hiding places, either for me or any of my little trinkets that I wanted to “protect” from my big brother. Nothing can explain the joy of woodworking or the ability to hide something, whether it be in the shop or a stash spot for your cash…You know, the stuff you save so you can buy that one tool you cant live without. Good luck to all that have entered and hopefully you all get enough shop time this weekend!

  • Matt_Rob

    Sure I am in

    Just staring to build handtools skills by building a number of boxes, this would be a great asset. Thanks for putting on the give away!

    • Woodsmyth

      I have a few of your books, but never got around to making any of your design. If I win it, I promise to actually make a few boxes from the book. 🙂

  • Loxmyth

    Interested, of course. I’ve been thinking I should do a series of boxes to sharpen my skills before the next larger project…

  • Dparry

    Thanks for the giveaway. Great resource for a beginner like myself.

    I have two of Doug’s books. Both are great and I have built some of the boxes in the books. This would be a great one to add to my library.

    Boxes are great way to practice & refine one’s work, uses minimal material, and you have a product for your efforts.

    Boxes. Wonders of organization & discards.

  • Fernando Batista

    Hi, thank you! Hope brazillian are also elegible… Learning a lot from the pop woodworking blogs. Best regards.

  • JumpingJax

    My wife commandeers all the boxes I make. (I’m fine with that, since she doesn’t object to tool buying if I build her a new box.) Some day I’ll have to sneak one past her for our granddaughter.

  • gregworks

    Boxes are my favorite projects to build.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Thanks for the give away. I never win anything (you have to know that when you live in Las Vegas), but I can’t resist a woodworking book. So, wish me luck! 🙂

    Looks like a good one. Please add me.

  • iampapabear

    Toss my name in the box, too, please.

  • Dave

    Throwing my name in the proverbial hat.

  • rustycolbert

    I love boxes. Also, I really like the dovetails that are hand made as that is how my great great grandmothers dresser (we inherited) was made. I was fascinated with the all of it since it came before any power tools. This will be a great addition to anyone’s woodworking library.

  • bhanlon

    Even looking closely, your dovetails are much better than mine! I’ve got lots of practice to do.

  • jknupp

    I think the dovetails look pretty darn good!

    Love the examples from the book.
