I make very simple boxes. Dovetails, a wedged tenon here and there, that's pretty much the extent of it. In truth, they're hardly boxes at all - really just some pieces of considered wood joined in a specified pattern. The fact that they can actually serve as a box is sort of a happy coincidence. A purpose, after all.

I usually don't organize or decorate the interiors much. You never know what someone might want to keep handy and hidden. Keepsakes. Vices. Imagine the possibilities.

So here's a modest woodworking narrative, the perceptible result of a lifelong obsession:

Using tools to work wood. Working wood to use tools.

kandi boxes.
