"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Small boxes for jewelry, trinkets, pencils, or simply for decoration are popular at craft shows. Here are directions for constructing 11 boxes, ranging from the simple rectangle to the complex oval body or curved lid. Basic directions on decorating with veneer, cross banding, parquetry, marquetry, and more are included. Each construction step is pictured with a colored line drawing, or a photograph with a few lines of explanatory text that are occasionally too brief for the novice to understand easily. A table router or chuck shaper is the main power tool required for most of the projects, and a band saw is needed for some. Recommended for libraries with a good demand for craft and woodworking books.
