smartBoxmaker – Fine Wooden Boxes


read my latest smartBoxmaker newsletter here

This is the home of the finest quality box hinges and box locks available. Beautifully machined, hand-finished, elegant and easiest of any to fit, smartWare – smartHinge and smartLock – is all-British made. Buy smartWare in polished brass, rhodium- and gold-plate, ONLY from this site. Then you will understand why smartWare is the first choice of box makers around the world.

I also run short courses in my fine boxes workshop in the Shropshire hills covering many aspects of box making. These include fitting hinges and locks, perfect inlays, use of table router, lining and finishing.

Because of all the work going on to organise the newly extended smartBoxmaker workshops – I’ve been rather slow to promote the courses for this year, so I still have a couple of spaces available on my
March 14th-18th 5 day ‘gold’ box making course.
I’m offering 2 places for only £595 each, a 20% saving on the full price of £745.

Read more on my Instagram feed, and in my latest newsletter.

Please call me on 01694 781318 or email me if you’d interested.

In addition I offer discerning box makers a select range of box-related materials – lining materials, inlay lines, abrasives and more.

So, whether you need box hinges or want to visit Shropshire to tune up your box making skills, smartBoxmaker is the place for you!
