A large oval shaker box with cherry wood swing handle. Although shaker boxes are mainly decorative today, they were originally a working box. The Shakers used them for storing kitchen ingredients or shop supplies. Made today in the same way they would have been made 150 years ago, this shaker box is made with tiny dowels and copper tacks produced on machinery that is over a century old.
Shaker boxes have made their mark and are prized today for the patience and skill required to make them.
Made in Bloomfield, NB from cherry wood.
