Boatshop Workshop: Shaker Box Making | Maine Maritime Museum | Wednesday, 12. August 2020

The Shakers are famous for their simple and elegant designs, and the Shaker oval box is no exception. Over two sessions in the Boatshop, you’ll build a set of three nesting oval boxes using boatbuilding techniques such as clinch nailing and steam bending. No experience is required; this class is a fantastic introduction to woodworking.  Boxes are made from cherry and cedar and all materials are provided.
There are two workshops scheduled:  August 12 & 13, 2020 from 1-4 pm and December 9 & 10, 2020 from 5-8 pm.
