Several years ago I took a box building class at the Penland School of Crafts with Julie Leonard; book artist extraordinaire. It was a great class as well as being a remarkable experience. I have continued to design and build boxes since the class. As a result, I can now build hinged and lidded boxes without instructions! There is truth in the saying ‘practice makes perfect’ (though I am not sure my boxes are perfect)! I recently built several boxes. Take a look at some of the steps in building lidded boxes.
