Anyone who knows me, knows that I am an “outside the box” kind of person! I like to take an idea and stretch it, play with it, distort it, expand on it, and, well, think outside of it.
But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like boxes. As a matter of fact, when I first began my journey into the woodworking world, I just wanted to make a box, any box, just a box. I love boxes. I love the practicality of them, the stackability of them, and the sturdiness of them.
I soon discovered, as I entered the world of the woodworker, that boxes aren’t just four sides, a bottom, and perhaps a lid — no, no, no… they are pieces of art!! Woodworkers young and old have created the most extraordinary “outside the box” boxes, with unique shapes and designs, masterful joinery, beautiful artwork and other unique additions to that “just a box” box.
(TIP: don’t forget to tag your blogs & forum discussions, as well as your creations, so we can get them added to the list. Thanks)
Now it’s your turn: show us your Wooden BOX – whether it is a first project, a practical 4 sides and a bottom, or a piece of art that will never hold anything other than people’s attention. Tag your box as such (BOX) and then share them here in the comments as well.
