- A PASSION FOR BOXES -
Often our time in the woodshop is guided by an excitement for our craft. Maybe yours is one of discovery, finding new ways to solve old problems through specialty jigs or looking for interesting ways to put together a collection of nice woods. You may be inspired by a yearning for nostalgia, using your hands and tools to produce your woodshop projects in ways similar to the craftsmen of old. Perhaps your enthusiasm is for furniture built in the style of Greene & Greene or Shaker designs. And for sure there are many out there that are passionate about box making.
Box makers and their individual contributions are as varied as the weather in Texas. From the soaring architectural constructions of
Po Shun Leong, to the elegant, clean lines of designs by Doug Stowe, there are boxes for every taste and style of construction. The one constant that appears again and again in our encounters with this particular passion is that many of the best box makers have discovered the value of owning an INCRA Router Fence System or Precision Table Saw Fence System for the special challenges that come with making finely crafted and exquisitely detailed pieces.


One such box maker has come to our attention through an article recently printed in Good Woodworking Magazine in the United Kingdom. Kieran O'Cuneen served for many years as an Ambassador for the European Union and developed an affinity for beautifully crafted boxes. His hobby has become his passion and now he creates beautiful pieces for many of his friends and acquaintances from his former career, including many Heads of State.
You'll surely enjoy his story (PDF format, file size: 2.4MB.)

Be sure to check out our new gallery page for Kieran as well.
