#6 Shaker BoxArtist: Mick Hayden
Items In Stock: 1
As beautiful as it is functional, this lovely handmade wooden box is made with a bird's eye maple lid and hickory sides. It measures around 12x8x5 inches. The swallow-tails are hand-cut and feathered, the bands steamed, curved and married the traditional way with tiny copper tacks; even tinier wooden pegs attach the sides to the oval top and bottom. The outside of box and lid are finished and, as is traditional, the insides remain unfinished. Light, strong and precisely constructed, this box lives up to the legacy standards of Shaker tradition. Wax or oil your box with your choice of wood care product, then polish with a soft cloth.
As each item is handcrafted and unique, the wood grains and patterns may vary from the photos shown above. Your purchase will include a card about the artist, and a wood-care card. Gift-wrapping is available upon request.
Made in the U.S.A., in Vandalia, Missouri.
