Fold-Up Keepsake Box Woodworking Plan, Gifts & Decorations Boxes & Baskets

Price: $7.95
Availability: In Stock
Item #: GR-00902a -

Martyn Brewer's unorthodox method for creating boxes caught our eye from clear across the Atlantic for three reasons. First, except for the bottom, the box is made from a single glued-up blank. Second, it is almost exclusively created at the tablesaw. Third, the Englishman's "fold-up" technique wraps a pattern around the box: simply adjust the size or change the pattern for an endless variety of intriguing designs.Featured in WOOD Issue 208, November 2011 ...
