Clam Shell Box making

Over the weekend John guided 6 participants through challenge of making a clam shell box. We found the grain of the box board, did lots of accurate measuring and cutting. Glued the boxes together then did more measuring and cutting of cover materials. We spent some time practising cutting and gluing tricky corners. Finally covered the boxes and covers. The result was 6 beautiful looking Clam Shell boxes. The happy makers left thinking about the prints that they are going to make to compliment their box.
