Traditionally used to store tea, herbs and sewing sundries, these oval boxes typify Shaker design, graceful and functional with clean lines.
These kits contain all the necessary materials — specially prepared cherry side band material, quarter-cut stock for the box tops and bottoms, plus wooden pegs and copper fasteners. Full-sized patterns allow easy construction of templates and bending forms, and thorough instructions provide clear guidance for shaping and bevelling the swallowtail fingers and bending the sides. Steaming or boiling of the wood is required for bending.
The swing handle carrier kit makes one #4 handled carrier (approx. 6" × 9"), while the oval box kit produces a nesting set of three boxes in sizes #1 to #3 (approx. 2 3/4" × 4 3/4" to 4 5/8" × 7 1/4").
