Shaker Box Making

June 24

5 p.m. — 8 p.m.  Boatshop Workshops

A Special Event for Father's Day: Dads, register for our June 24 & 25 class and bring your son or daughter (ages 8-14) to join you in the Boatshop to learn Shaker box building! Each parent/child team will work together to construct one set of Shaker boxes. Please note: this class is not limited to parent/child teams, individual participants are welcome!

This popular workshop is ideal for the beginner to intermediate woodworker.  In just two short sessions you’ll gain the skills to build a hand crafted set of shaker boxes.  Each box is built of cherry, copper tacks, and cedar, and serves as an elegant storage container.  If you’ve ever wanted to learn to make a nesting set of three oval shaker boxes this is the class for you.  No woodworking experience is necessary and all materials are included.
