Box Kitz – Walnut

Out of stock


Would you like to be remotely tutored by a well known and experienced artisan box maker?  Do you enjoy learning through watching rather than reading?  Ian Hawthorne is currently recording a free-access-to-all  basic veneered box-making project on YouTube – (part 1 is available from Sunday 7 June 2020) and so we are now offering Basic Box Kits for creating a similar veneered box to his creation – the Box Kitz.  So, as he’s explaining the basics in his workshop, you can use the Box Kitz to work alongside him in your workshop.
The Box Kitz not only cuts down on preparation time and the machinery required, it also reduces surplus costs involved in buying stock, as you have exactly what you need to complete the project.
