Using the methods of old Shaker craftsmen, artist Jeffrey Neil uses thin wood strips that are made with a cut finger pattern. Hot water soaking makes this wood pliable, and the wood is bent to an oval shape in a single motion. Copper tacks in the fingers fix the oval shape. The top and bottom are secured with wooden pegs.
I use my divider for my sewing items, but I do love just displaying it. The form is lovely and so well constructed. Thank you for such quality products!
Thank you for your purchase! This is a pretty handy piece, for sure!
