Tom and Cindy Hollander, owners of Hollander's, first wrote Constructing and Covering Boxes in 2010. In 2020 their book has been updated and reprinted as a second edition. In this book you will learn all the steps necessary to make a variety of colorful and functional boxes created from book board and covered with book cloth and decorative paper. Nearly 300 clear color photos illustrate every step needed to make two standard types of boxes, hinged lid and clamshell styles. The second edition includes a new chapter on making divided boxes.
All the appropriate tools and materials are discussed and essential formulas are provided for each box type. Basic skills necessary for the successful construction of any box are described in detail, including determining grain direction, pattern layout, cutting materials, covering book board with paper or book cloth, and gluing. The book includes a wonderful gallery of images to inspire your own creative boxes.
