Robert Albers' Profile

About

A life-long woodworker, I am an independent artist based in Valparaiso, IN. I design everything I make and shape each piece by hand. My output is comparatively small, but I have been making bandsaw boxes for about seventeen years now and have produced over one thousand of them. The boxes make beautiful accent pieces for the home as well as excellent gifts. I use no stains in my work so the color you see in the box is the natural color of the wood. Recently I have tried to include a "secret drawer" in each box. It is a small drawer accessible from the backside of one the regular drawers. In the past three years I have won three ribbons in art fairs including a "Best Overall Award."
