Oval Shaker Boxes originated in the early 1700s within the Shaker communities of America. These beautifully handcrafted oval storage boxes were designed for everyday use around the home from dry pantry ingredients and kitchen items to small craft supplies, parts for workshops. Shaker Boxes are not only beautiful but are unique in their construction using veneer-like wood thickness, copper rivets and dowels.
Our Oval Shaker Boxes are produced by Jude Legg from our Brisbane Workshop using traditional ‘bentwood’ methods, American Cherry timber and authentic cooper rivets sourced from Shaker Suppliers in Mount Lebanon USA. The American Cherry is a prized hardwood that we have selected due to its smooth grain, warm reddish-brown colour and light pink flecks or patina.
We offer 5 Oval Shaker Box sizes which can be purchased separately or as a set to add a warm and simple touch to your home decoration or used as dry storage containers just as the Shakers intended. Shaker Boxes also make beautiful wedding centre-pieces or decorations.
