Event description

Description

The Shakers are famous for their simple and elegant designs, and the Shaker oval box is no exception. Copper nails dress up the swallowtail joints that hold the boxes together. Boatbuilding teechniques such as clinch nailing and steam bending are employed, although no woodworking experience is necessary.

Each participant builds three nesting oval boxes made from cherry and cedar. All materials are included in the class fee.


This class meets on May 17 and 18, 2017 from 5-8pm and on December 6 and 7, 2017 from 5-8pm.
