Shaker Oval Boxes with Herman Bueno April 9-10, 2022

In this class students will make five nested oval shaker boxes. If time allows, students will also make a bonus (small tray) project. Herman will start the first day with a little history and the tradition of making shaker boxes. Box materials, bending forms, tools, and optional/alternative procedures will be presented. Students will start by measuring and making the bands, choosing and cutting the finger patterns, drilling tack holes and then soaking the veneer bands in hot water. These bands will be shaped around a bending form, tacked, and then allowed to dry. On the second day students will fit the top and bottom, as well as drill and mount the wooden pegs which will hold the boxes together. By the end of the day Herman will share his method for how to finish the boxes. This class is perfect for an individual or for a parent/child combination. Be aware, making Shaker oval boxes can be habit forming.
