Box Making

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Welcome .. as from January 2018 we have established a Box Making SIG.   Please come along sometime. We meet on the second Monday  and the 4th Friday of each month.  This recognises that  many of us cannot commit evenings or daytimes on a regular basis  – so we have designed this so that you can choose just when and how long you would like to attend.  Whether it is just afternoons, or just evenings, or both – there is plenty to do and learn at any session.

We are planning regular demonstrations and talks about all aspects of box making –  dovetail boxes, finger joint boxes, band saw boxes, scroll saw boxes, turned boxes – end grain or not, big boxes, small boxes, blanket boxes,  jewelry boxes, document boxes – you name it we can help with it from plans to finished product .. and if you want to add detail such as marquetry, inlay, carving, pyrography,  epoxy resin, quartz, gold, silver, pewter –  all can be done right here in this SIG.

Come along and have a chat, or a listen.. and if you do not have a current project on the go we can find you one.

if you would like further information or a chat email the SIG co-ordinator Bill Taylor at boxmaking@woodcraftguild.org.au
