Bandsaw Box Making with Michael Cullen

A wonderful opportunity to explore the art of box making in a very creative way. This class is open to non-woodworker as well as woodworkers of all skill levels who would like to break into new territory.

In this five day class, taught by renowned furniture maker Michael Cullen a regular contributor to Fine Woodworking magazine, you’ll investigate different approaches and forms that a box can become using both hand tools and machines.

This workshop is highly creative and will focus on exploring ideas in box making that fall outside the typical six-sided container. Emphasis will be on shaping and sculpting boxes to create pleasing curves, unusual shapes and just about anything that falls into the category of fun and zany.  A primary focus in the workshop will be on creating pattern and texture, and applying color to the surfaces of the boxes.

You will design and build two to three small boxes. You will hone your skills by constructing your designs with safe operation of power tools and hand tools. You will practice different designs and construction for each box.  You will investigate different approaches and forms that a box and vessel form can take on, using both hand tools and machines. during class participants will use carving tools, chisels, files and rasps, and some machinery. Be prepared to veer off the path into creative territory.

Tools used but limited to include:  gouges and chisels, files and rasps and some machinery.  This class is  perfect for the beginner who is curious about making things from wood; and is also very good for the expert who is looking to create something new and fresh.
