The Art Of The Box

October 11, 2020 – October 17, 2020

Michael Cullen

In this workshop students explore the art of box making while discovering ideas that fall outside the box. You will learn how to apply patterns, texture and colors to the surfaces of the boxes. Emphasis will be on using the bandsaw to shape and sculpt boxes with pleasing curves while exploring unusual, fun, or even zany shapes. This class is perfect for the beginner who is curious about making things from wood and is equally appropriate for the expert who is looking to experiment and create something new and fresh. Open to all skill levels.


Michael Cullen makes furniture and sculpture in his workshop in Petaluma, California. He received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from University of California, Santa Barbara and worked in machine design before pursuing a career in studio furniture. Michael divides his time by creating furniture, teaching and writing articles on design and technique.
