Full Description

Come enjoy a peaceful weekend and build a set of nesting oval boxes. These simple boxes have become an iconic image of Shaker design. We will explore a handful of useful woodworking skills involved in this project such as selecting and preparing thin stock for bending, bending wood, and using chisels and spoke shaves for shaping and fitting parts. Each student will create 3-4 oval boxes, with the final number dependent on individual skill levels.
