Woodworking Intensive: Shaker Boxes

from 100.00

Nothing says quality and craftsmanship like the simple elegance of a Shaker box. Shaker founder, Mother Ann Lee, once said “Do all your work as though you had a thousand years to live, and as you would if you knew you must die tomorrow.” You don’t have to get THAT intense about it, but if you’ve wanted to try your hand at traditional woodworking skills, this is the perfect workshop for you.

Discover how to transform gorgeous hardwoods (cherry or maple) through steam bending into two oval-shaped boxes – using no glue! These functional and beautiful boxes are fastened and held together with copper tacks and wooden pegs. Students will make a set of two boxes (Shaker size 1 & 2, the largest of the Shaker boxes).

Additionally, each box will feature a figured wood top and can be completed with oil or the traditional milk paint for those who wish to paint their boxes.

No prior woodworking experience is necessary for this workshop.
