This project’s clear and detailed instructions made it extremely easy to complete, and help to easily get a grasp of all the steps which go into making boxes of this sort – many of which aren’t completely obvious if you were building from scratch without thinking it through very carefully first. Various small box building tricks are employed here, which all help to minimize the work and errors that can commonly crop up in these sorts of projects. Top notch, also very thorough thought with regards to constructing this for the purpose of a humidor.
Works fantastically and looks the part!
This is an outstanding video series for making a great looking box that can be used as a humidor, jewellery box or tea box. I added a two-level set of trays and made it as a jewellery box.
The series gives a great overview of veneering and demonstrates how easily it can be done even if you don’t have a veneer vacuum press. Each step in the build is thoroughly covered along with a discussion of reasons behind the design and construction decisions. The video series also gives a great demonstration of rubbing out a finish to achieve a smooth high gloss finish. I personally didn’t do this when I built this project but seeing this technique was quite valuable as I’ll likely use it at some point.
As with all of Mark’s Guild videos, the production quality, lighting, sound and editing are all the best in the business. Mark is a great teacher and ensures you have all the information to be successful.
