After a trip to the shaker village in Pleasantown, KY, I decided that I needed to make some of the shaker boxes. I ordered the supplies and got to work. I had to build the forms etc., and get a tray to heat the water/wood in, but they were a fun project to do. I also tried some bright aniline dye colors on them like I saw at the shaker village. I made 10 of them, and gave them all as gifts for Christmas. The girls all seemed to like them.
Sprayed lacquer after toe dyes. The tops are quarter sawn sycamore and birdseye maple. I really love the birdseye maple grain!
