Not only for housing books, hand made boxes have a variety of functions. This course will teach the basics of decorative box construction. Students will create a box with two drawers. By mastering the basic template for this box model, students will gain the necessary skills for other varieties of boxes, while also enhancing their bookbinding skills.
