Extract from back cover of book:

Small boxes are among the most attractive and useful of all turned articles, and offer the perfect showcase for the maker's skills. This exciting book contains 40 fantastic boxes, devised by expert turners from around the world, with designs to suit all levels of ability as well as taste. Projects range from basic boxes to more intricate, challenging designs. A wide variety of timbers is used to make the most of the striking colours and grain patterns available.

The projects include endgrain boxes, finial boxes, offset lidded forms and Tunbridge ware. Each project has clear, detailed instructions and dimensioned drawings along with either step-by-step colour photorgaphy or easy-to-read diagrams.
