Peter Lloyd Books
||Guided by an experienced woodworker and hundreds of photos, enjoy a full course that covers everything: sourcing and seasoning different woods; choosing and using tools and equipment, and mastering basic techniques (mapping out the design, making dovetails, assembling the internal pieces), and more. |
Projects include a strap-hinged box with a curved drawer; a chess box with board; and a skeleton box.
||Prizewinning wooden boxes are the subject of this beautifully produced, full-color art book. The selection of boxes included is the result of a worldwide competition for placement in the "Celebrating Boxes" exhibition held at Tullie House, England, in September 2001. Many of featured artists are American, but makers from 10 other countries around the world are also represented. The creation of fine boxes is especially interesting to woodworkers because it combines the skills of the painter, sculptor, and cabinet-maker all in one useful object. This is not a "how to"; rather it is a source of ideas and inspiration for craftspeople. |
