Shaker Box - All Cherry

Regular price $ 37.00

Joe Dowden, an American craftsman, has been handcrafting Shaker oval boxes since 1996.  These wooden boxes are traditional oval boxes from the Shaker community, a religious group that reached its peak in the mid-nineteenth century.  They lived on self-sustaining farms in the United States, believing in a modest life that included making simply designed, well-made crafts and furniture.  The Shakers used wood that was accessible and easy to bend to make the bands of the box, usually maple and pine.  Today, Joe uses all cherry for this simply perfect box. Well sized and well made, this keepsake box has endless uses.  Joe's work has been honored by Early American Life Magazine for the last five years.  

Approximately 6" L x 4" W x 2 1/2 " H     (Accessories pictured not included with box)
