Details

Before the age of canisters and Tupperware, Shaker craftsmen made and marketed oval boxes made of wood. Explore the traditions of the Shaker box as you learn how to soak, bend, tack, carve and sand cherrywood to form the box and lid. In the end you will make a stack of three nesting boxes finished with homemade beeswax furniture polish. Your finished product can be used for all occasions, utilitarian as well as decorative. Its charm and grace make a difference whatever role it plays.

Age range: Over 16
