Thinking inside the box! Making band saw boxes allows woodworkers creativity that just can't be found in other types of woodworking.

Step-by-step photos and instructions for projects involving lamination—the bonding together of two or more pieces of wood—are provided in this guide to using wood lamination as an art form. Depending on the intricacy of the design, lamination can be either very simple or astoundingly complex. The 10 projects presented here are of all differing skill levels and abilities, often presenting fascinating challenges that help woodworkers develop their laminating skills. Several designs for clocks and puzzles are included, as are unique pieces such as a piggy bank, a basket weave box, and a cutting board.
No woodworking project is more fun to make than a box. Requiring little material and offering lots of challenges, making a wooden box results in a satisfyingly functional project that is proudly used and displayed or given as a gift that will be cherished for years. It's no wonder boxes rank as the most popular woodworking project by beginners and advanced craftsman alike. David Picciuto, aka The Drunken Woodworker, is a huge fan of making boxes, especially with his trusty bandsaw. His Bandsaw Box You Tube videos and his Weekly Woodworking Round-up are must see viewing among the woodworking community. In his first book, The New Bandsaw Box Book: Technqiues and Patterns for the Modern Woodworker, David presents a collection of beautiful boxes that can be easily made with a bandsaw, considered by most woodworkers as the most important, versatile, and easy to use stationary tool in the workshop. Each project is captured in a modern and fresh step-by-step style that makes learning easy while David's engaging manner keeps the information accessible and light. In keeping with the younger, artisan mindset that is infiltrating the woodworking community, David concludes with his “raises a glass” toast that matches the perfect craft beer to compliment the wood and style of each completed project.
