2017 Fall Seminar

Box Making with Doug Stowe: November 10th - 12th, 2017

The 2017 Fall Seminar with Doug Stowe was an engaging weekend full of helpful tips on making decorative boxes. Doug shared his philosophy and aesthetic approach to box-making and demonstrated several useful (and pretty quick) techniques on the table saw, including keyed-mitered, hidden splined, and mitered finger joints.

Doug had a number of his boxes and books on display. If you missed the seminar but would still like to learn his techniques, be sure to check out some of his books.

About Mr. Stowe
Doug Stowe began his career as a woodworker in 1976, making custom furniture and small boxes.  He lives in a wooded hillside at the edge of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and specializes in the use of Arkansas hardwoods. In 1995 Doug began writing how-to articles for woodworking magazines and in 1997 his first woodworking book was published. Doug has now finished his thirteenth book and it will be available in October, 2017.  He is also the author of three Taunton DVDs, Basic Box Making, Rustic Furniture Basics and Building Small Cabinets. Additionally, Doug is the author of over 80 articles in woodworking magazines, and two of his books have been translated into German.

In 2001, Mr. Stowe began the Wisdom of the Hands program at Clear Spring School. The program was designed to integrate woodworking activities into academic curriculum, restoring the rationale for use of crafts in general education and demonstrating its effectiveness. In 2009 he was named an “Arkansas Living Treasure” by the Arkansas Department of Heritage and Arkansas Arts Council for his contributions to traditional crafts and craft education. Doug also teaches at the Eureka Springs School of the Arts and the Marc Adams School of Woodworking and at woodworking clubs throughout the U.S.
