The Pennsylvania spice box is a challenging project for woodworkers of all levels.

The five-day Pennsylvania Spice Box course will hone your woodworking skills like no other project. Are you up to the challenge?

Pennsylvania Spice Box

The Pennsylvania spice box offers unique challenges to the intermediate woodworker. From case construction to hanging a door and dovetailing a large number of drawers, this project will challenge your skills.

The best part of spice boxes is the secret compartments, right? I’ve designed this Pennsylvania spice box with several.


Some of the skills learned in the Pennsylvania Spice Box class are:

  • How to incorporate secret compartments into your woodworking projects
  • How to break down a complex project into easy-to-accomplish smaller steps
  • How to make ogee feet
  • Matching figure in wood to provide the best possible look for your project

Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through us or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class. Please contact us for pricing or a materials list (for registered students only).
