Construction:
•    Materials: Constructed from a maple or birch band with a quarter-sawn pine bottom and ash handle.  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, bottom board and handle 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.
