Went to he June Parent Child Shaker oval boxes weekend with my 10 year old daughter at Marc Adams School.
First three photos are from the class and arriving home, they made a stack of 5 boxes plus a bonus box.
As every year, we get an exchange student from France for the month of July.
For a souvenier to take back with her we used the templates from the class and veneer from John Wilson (shakerovalbox.com) and together Diana and I made a box at home using a foam insulation as the bending form.
Final photo is is the two girls getting so show their work at the Guild Meeting in Wichita – Sunflower Woodworkers
These realy are a great project with kids, and use no glue at all, only clinched copper tacks and some toothpicks as pegs to hold the top and bottom to the bands. you make all the bands for a set of 5 boxes including meal and instruction time listening, on day one.
The second day you have all the tops and bottoms fittend and pinned by noon. – clean up and are heading home around 3 with a stack of completed boxes.
We did all of these out of Cherry
