Experience the art and craft of steam bent Shaker Boxes with members Stuart and Carol Faulkner of Heartwood Creative Woodworking. Learn how to layout, cut, shape, feather and pin the fingers that create the “gothic arches” that cleverly hold and detail the box. Straight out of the steamer, the box bands will be wrapped around formers to create the iconic oval shape of the shaker box.
The grain and figure of the box will be enhanced with a traditional shellac and wax finish. Time permitting, discussion will be provided about different approaches to bending the bands and the construction of steam boxes.
Timber, tools and consumables to create a steam bent box.
