J1001 Just Right Box – DIY Kit


The Just Right Box DIY Kit is our most customizable yet. Build it just how you want with your choice of wood, hardware and felt color.


Just right…for you.
Gerstner fans have had their input, and overwhelmingly wanted more kits. We’re proud to unveil our most customizable kit yet, the DIY Just Right Box Kit. You’ll truly be making it your own when you choose the wood, hardware and felt color of the box you put together.

DIY kits like this have really taken off because they are a memorable experience that can be done in a weekend. All the joinery is pre-machined, so a beautiful box can be achieved, no matter your skill level. We learned from over 100 years in the business; woodworking is a great stress reliever. It improves dexterity and stimulates imagination. Besides, building something with your own two hands that is both functional and great looking leaves you with a wonderful sense of accomplishment. It feels great to be productive.

We added the J1001 Just Right Box to our DIY line because it is so versatile. When it’s all put together, this can be a handsome dresser box, just the right size for accessories. Keep it in the office with your nice pens, on your dresser your most used EDC, or the sitting room with your prized collectibles. The finished piece is not a formal jewelry box, not a big tool chest, not too big or too small, but just right for 1001 uses. And making this extremely versatile box extremely customizable too means, no matter your hobbies and style, you’ll have the perfect box.

The DIY Just Right is also a perfect gift. You could present this project as something to do together, or with the kids or grandkids, because the completed Just Right Box will remind whoever is involved of a special weekend spent together. Otherwise, you could finish the box as the best kind of homemade present. It’s so heartwarming to receive something so valuable and so useful, made by hand from someone you love.

    This is the second DIY box I’ve built from Gerstner and I thoroughly enjoyed building it. A few clamps, some wood glue, and a little time are all it takes to get a perfectly square box. The wood in the kit, mine was cherry, is absolutely beautiful. The hardware is also top notch. Everything went together very smoothly. Make sure you dry fit everything first to see how it goes together. It’s fairly straightforward build, just know how it all fits before you start putting on the glue. As with the other DIY tote, you can finish it with just a simple wipe on clear, or go the extra mile and really make it look fantastic with just a little more work. Either way, you will end up with a very well made box that you had a hand in building. I didn’t encounter any problems with this build, everything fit just as it should. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. If you’ve wanted a Gerstner box but were deterred by the cost, these are much less expensive and if you are a person who likes to be hands on then this is something you will really enjoy. You will end up with something built with quality and will last your lifetime. They also make great gifts that are both useful and something you can hand down to younger generations in your family.
