Small boxes are a great way to develop wood working skills. Books like this one are great idea generators. Would be a great one to have.
My initial thought was that if this was cheating then there would have to be some sense of competition implied. I have never viewed woodworking that way. As a woodworker who started out 30 years ago as a hack at best I continued to constantly improve the quality of work I produced with better tools, better jigs, but more importantly, increased knowledge. I'd like to believe that the project I do today is of better quality than the one I did yesterday and not as good as the one I build tomorrow. How I choose to improve is up to me. It should be that way for every woodworker without any sense of guilt as to how they achieve improvement. Unfortunately if I tried to freehand dovetails without a jig or tool I wood have a lot of firewood.
I am always interested in new woodworking publications that can extend my knowledge. One never stops learning.
