Week two focuses on the design elements of the box, as well as some hand tool techniques. I really like the new column in Popular Woodworking called Design Matters by George Walker. I have also purchased and watched George's new DVD on the same topic. This inspired me to talk a bit more in this episode about the considerations I make when considering design elements, since I subscribe to George's philosophy that there are rules that can make projects better - not specific to individual taste - but in general balance and proportions. Stay tuned, I have quite a bit content still in the hopper on this project!
