The only way to make a more popular book on making boxes is to add a puzzle. And not just any puzzle, spring loaded, hidden drawer puzzles! These band-sawn puzzle boxes have it all. The book takes two, popular small-project styles (boxes and puzzles) and combines them into some mind-blowing projects. With a small amount of instruction and some practice, the reader will be able create amazing puzzle boxes using wood that would usually be thrown away as scrap. There are 12 projects of increasing difficulty, as well as a section on how to choose the best wood and how to apply finishes.
Jeff Vollmer made his first puzzle box in 1989. This was the beginning of Royal Woods, his own part-time business. In 1992 he made a full-time commitment to making band-sawn boxes and Royal Woods really took off. Today, Jeff and his wife, Lynn, work together making puzzle boxes and selling them at art shows and in fine galleries.
