Keith Woods' Profile
The boxes I offer here and at kwoodsboxworks.com are all original designs, usually incorporating curved forms and frequently featuring legs of some kind. But besides the unusual designs, I feel what really sets my boxes apart is the materials.
I love wood. Real wood. I started making boxes as an excuse to get to work with beautiful wood- there's plenty of cheap stuff out there already. I want to make something real and beautiful.
All of my boxes are crafted of solid hardwoods using traditional techniques: no plywood, veneers, or metal fasteners are used (save for the brass hardware). This is actually quite unusual; even much more expensive boxes are today very frequently made of paper-thin veneers of real wood over plywood or MDF. This is a much cheaper way to make boxes, but I find it unappealing and dissatisfying, like one…
