This size #1 Shaker Box in a green milk paint finish measures 5” long by 3” wide by 1 ¾” tall, making it the perfect size for holding special pieces of jewelry or other tiny keepsakes. Needleworkers will find it useful for storing small sewing implements.

Construction:

  • Materials: The sides of this box are constructed from maple or birch and the top and bottom boards from quarter-sawn pine. All lumber is milled at our shop here in Embden, Maine.
  • Hand-Cut Joints: Each swallowtail joint is individually hand-cut by Robert LeHay, ensuring each piece is unique.
  • Fasteners: The band and top and bottom boards are secured with copper tacks made on original 19th-century machines.
  • Finish Options: Available in a variety of milk paint and natural finishes. All painted pieces receive two coats of a high-quality tung oil finish, while natural finish boxes receive five coats. This oil finish ensures that the box is well protected and the finish will only get better with age.
  • Aged Appearance: Copper tacks are darkened to provide a vintage look. Following tradition, the bottom of painted pieces is left unpainted, then dyed and oiled to provide an aged patina.
