Description: Learn to make Shaker boxes in this two-day workshop. Learn the art of bending hardwood and wood technology. This is a great experience and is a great chance for woodworkers to develop a new skill. Everyone will leave with Shaker boxes they made themselves. Shaker oval boxes were the most popular item the Shakers offered to the "outside" world. They are just as popular today. Originally produced for their practicality (nesting boxes inside each other required little storage space) and utility (almost anything and everything was stored in these durable containers), they have become collector items for their simple beauty. They are fashioned from either Pennsylvania cherry wood, black walnut, maple, old fashioned milk paint and for the tops we use various other beautiful woods such as birdseye maple, quilted maple, lacewood, heart pine, zebra wood to name a few.
