Plywood Functional Boxes

General purpose plywood box
Plywood box with foam insert

Whilst there are countless designs of inexpensive plywood boxes available online - if you require a simple yet functional box to specific dimensions then we may be able to assist. Photo's show boxes made from birch plywood .  Birch plywood is good quality and is often best presented with a simple water-based (or acrylic) lacquer.  Decorative electro-brass hinges and catches complete the design.

We have a limited capability to include foam in the box with simple machined-pockets - we do not provide moulded/formed inserts.  A simple yet flexible design and construction - maybe ideal for presenting that end-of-year student project.

PS.  We specialise in custom one-off and low volumes of boxes; we aren't the folks for large quantities.
