This workshop is designed for new students who will make a nest of 6 boxes and returning students who can make the traditional nest or a set of Crown Boxes. All boxes are made from cherry wood. Learn how to bend and form the wood into the finished shape.   Simple construction and elegant design makes this project appealing. The workshop is designed for both novice and seasoned woodworkers. All tools, equipment, and materials needed to complete a nest of six Shaker boxes will be provided for each participant.
