Every tiny precious object deserves a beautiful small box to keep it safe, a box that opens smoothly on well-constructed hinges and closes with a satisfying snap of the clasp. We'll build such containers in this class, starting with texturing/stamping to decorate the box lid, followed by demos and discussion of the infinitely variable intricacies of constructing boxes, hinges, and catches.


Skill Level: Intermediate - You must be able to solder on your own.
