Box Kitz – Walnut



New Stock available NOW

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 has recorded a free-access-to-all  basic veneered box-making project on YouTube– (parts 1 to 9 are now available to view – that’s over 6hrs of worthwhile box making) and we are supplying 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.  There are now 3 variations of the Kit available you can choose from the following
  • Oak borders with zebrano veneer (suede tbc)
  • Walnut borders with oak veneer (suede tbc)
  • Sycamore borders with walnut veneer (suede tbc)
Each Kit Contains

  • 2 pieces of 9mm MDF to create lid and base
  • 2 pieces of veneer to create lid inner and outer

    I received the box everything as there. I live in northern Idaho, so the box will be a project this winter when it cold outside.

      Hi Jim (USA) so glad you bought the Box Kitz and plan to work on creating the keepsake box this winter! We offer these box kits with a variety of veneers and borders. Looking forward to receiving images of the finished piece! Best Wishes – the FineBoxHardware Team 🙂
