For more than 30 years, Doug Stowe has been making boxes in Northwestern Arkansas, often using locally grown hardwoods and unusual embellishments, such as inlaid stones, leather hinges, or hand-wrought handles and pulls.
In this excerpt from his DVD, “Basic Box Making,” Stowe demonstrates how to resaw stock on the tablesaw as well as the bandsaw. He also shows how to use a miter sled on the tablesaw to cut box sides accurately, with grain that appears continuous across the miter joint.
