Everything you need to make 5 different sizes of Shaker oval boxes, including tools, wood, patterns and instructions.

$450, anyone?

I think shipping will cost ~$75 or $100.

Included are:

Instructions, written and video:

Forming forms, drying forms, air-dried cherry veneer for the bands that make up the lids and bases (different dimensions depending on which size you are making, its all organized for you); and lovely quartersawn cherry for the tops and bottoms.

Galvanized steel tray for boiling the veneer before bending (use on a stove top or hotplate.

Steel pipe anvil for forming the copper tacks.

Drilling jig and flush cutter for the “dowels” (toothpicks, really) that attach the tops and bottoms to the bands after they’ve been formed and dried:

Patterns for cutting the “fingers” and predrilling the holes (so it is easier to insert the tacks).

Tacks! Different sizes for different sized boxes. It is explained in the instructions.
