The recessed lid of this box allows needleworkers to install finished pieces onto the top of the box. The top board on the cover is recessed ¼”.
To attach your needlework you will need to supply an "insert" (not included). A piece of foam core board is often used and can be purchased at many online or local craft supply shops.
This size #3 Shaker Box with recessed lid is 7 ½” Long by 5” wide by 3” tall.
This is a nice size Shaker box to organize kitchen ingredients, sewing supplies or to hold that special piece of jewelry or other keepsake!
The sides of this box are constructed from maple and the top and bottom boards from quarter-sawn pine. Each swallowtail joint is individually hand-cut with a knife. Copper tacks secure both the bands and the top and bottom boards.
Boxes are available in a variety of milk paint and natural finishes. A Tung Oil topcoat is applied to all our pieces.
On painted and antiqued pieces the tacks are darkened to provide an aged appearance. Per tradition the bottom of painted pieces are left unpainted, and are then dyed and oiled to provide an appearance of age.
