Canework is perfect for making nesting boxes! I love the way the pattern reduces down to the tiniest box! I’ve wanted to make nesting boxes for years, but if I covered pre-made boxes, then they didn’t fit together anymore. One day a reader told me that cardstock boxes can be soaked out with water after baking. Here was the solution to my problem! I can make boxes any size and shape I want. Not only that, but these boxes would be made of pure clay! I found that most of the cardstock could be pulled out of the box without even soaking it. I used these templates, but they did have to be adjusted a little to make the top fit. With a little ingenuity, I’m sure you could figure out your own.
You could use any cane. These were made with canes from the October 2013 issue of Cane Builder (available starting Sept 25).
