These quality handmade shaker boxes are one of those things that add charm to any décor.
This set of boxes includes sizes #1 through #5. The boxes here have been stained and finished with satin lacquer.
The bands are made from maple while the tops and bottoms come from quarter sawn pine. These are woods traditionally used in the construction of shaker boxes.
The "swallowtails" on the bands are cut with a knife by hand. The bands are then steamed or boiled, bent to the oval shape and tacked with copper tacks the same way they have been made for years.
The dimensions of the smallest, #1 box, are approx. 4-3/4" long x 2-7/8" wide x 1-3/4" high while the largest box, #5, is approx. 10-0" long x 7-0" wide x 4-0" high.
