Exquisite inlaid covers, gracefully simple lines and soft curves, glorious woods, intriguing lids, and intricate compartments are the hallmarks of the work of some of the world's best box-making artists. "If you think a box is just a box, you're in for a surprise. The boxes Lydgate details are...handcrafted works that call for such exotic woods as rosewood, purpleheart, satinwood, and Hawaiian koa....Not a lot of board feet are needed for any project and the average woodworker will have the tools to make every project in the book."--Booklist.

From Booklist:

If you think a box is just a box, you're in for a surprise. The boxes Lydgate details are not a bunch of boards slapped together, but painstakingly handcrafted works that the impatient woodworker cannot make. Further, these particular boxes call for such exotic woods as rosewood, purpleheart, satinwood, and Hawaiian koa. The good news is that not a lot of board feet are needed for any project and that the average woodworker will have the tools to make every project in the book. The bad news is that the woods called for probably won't be at the local lumberyard and that you may feel politically incorrect using wood from a shrinking tropical rain forest. Materials obtained, you'll have to take your time on account of instructions that are sparse and even cryptic; although there aren't many pieces involved in any project, carefully planned construction is essential. Jon Kartman
