Box making is perfect for beginning woodworkers interested in gaining skills, experimenting with design, and feeling satisfaction at a project that can be completed without the time and expense commitment of a bigger project. This DVD will offer basic designs, as well as many variations to teach different woodworking techniques while the audience learns to create a practical item or a gift that will become an heirloom. While this DVD will be enjoyed by beginners, it will also be great for any woodworker interested in small projects that can be done in a weekend with wood leftover from another project.
