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. The sides are fashioned from either Pennsylvania cherry, black walnut, or maple woods, and for the tops other beautiful woods are used such as birdseye maple, quilted maple, lacewood, heart pine, zebra wood to name a few.(updated)
