This site is for anyone interested in wooden boxes, wood, trees, woodworking and other (usually) related topics.
I have been known to occasionally write about topics as far afield as modular homes and fireflies, but for the most part I do stick to wood related subjects.
(See back issues of Woodshop News for those and other far reaching topics.)
My goal with this site is to inform customers about wood and woodworking so as to make it easier to buy an item that will suit you for years to come.
It is also for woodworkers who want more information about wood, woodworking and, of course, boxes.
It's a topic close to my heart. I hope you find it to be interesting and engaging.
If at any point you get lost, or want to see if a particular topic has been covered, check out the site map. I have many pages that aren't included in the menu to the left, so to dig deeper into your options, the site map is the place to go.
I hope you find a gift for a friend, learn something about wood, are inspired, decide to pick up a new tool or otherwise enjoy your stay on this site.
I update the site periodically as the mood (and available time) dictates, so check back often.
