Customize Your Own Spice Box!

 3spiceboxes wr

Instructor:Lonnie Bird

April 27-May 2, 2015
6 full days of woodworking instruction



Our spice box has always been one of our most popular woodworking classes. Now you can customize the spice box in a number of ways. Choose from:

  • Double arched panel door or two different line-and-berry door designs
  • Bracket feet or ogee feet (Two ogee foot designs to choose from. See photos)
  • Six drawer interior or thirteen drawer interior

We’ve carefully designed every detail to ensure beautiful lines and proportions. You can personally select each feature and come up with a unique box of your own. You can even make design changes to the inlay by subtracting or adding to the details.

Each participant must mill the stock for the main box and dovetail the case at home before the class begins. This will provide valuable time during class to work on the line & berry door, tombstone door, interior dividers, feet, molding and other details. We'll send you a drawing with the dovetail layout so you'll have plenty of time to work at your own pace and cut the dovetails before class begins.

Topics Include:
  • Methods for line & berry inlay
  • Constructing an arched frame-and-panel door
  • Carefully fitting doors and small drawers with a hand plane
  • Making and applying moldings
  • Mounting hinges and locks

The size of this woodworking class is limited so that you'll receive personal attention and instruction.

Prerequisite: Woodworking Essentials. The spice cabinet is a very challenging project that requires considerable handtool skills. We want you to be prepared for this advanced course so that you will gain the most from your experience. Please read the Prerequisite page for details on our policy.
