3 classes...

I am now on the schedule to teach three classes this next summer at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking. The first will be "pocket boxes", a weekend class on June 18 and 19, 2016. Next will be a weeklong box class, June 20-24, followed by a small decorative cabinet class on June 25 and 26.

To register for any of these classes, register for the Marc Adams School of Woodworking newsletter.

Registration will open around Thanksgiving and is open first to returning students. My classes tend to fill up fast, so do not delay. Sign up for the MASW newsletter to receive a reminder.

As you can see in the photo, my Japanese puzzle boxes are nearly complete.

I have also begun planning my next tiny boxes.
Each tiny box design offers new fun, and this one will be based on molding bits available from MLCS as shown in the screen shot at left. Imagine the molding turned upside down to use as box sides, but the molding being cut from stock that is already rip sawn and then taped together. After the stock is shaped, and the miters are cut, the tape is removed so that it will form both the lid and body of the box.

In the meantime, I've become interested in the various ways that machinists set up, and you may be curious about 123 blocks. First, let's attend to how they are made.

Make, fix and create...
