Boatshop Workshop: Shaker Box Making

December 6, 2017 — December 7, 2017

5 p.m. — 8 p.m.  Boatshop Workshops

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 techniques 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.

Members $75; nonmembers $94
