Cherry Presentation Shaker BoxJeffrey Neil
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.
Presentation boxes are a more elegant, elongated shape which were used as a gift box for holding tokens of appreciation and thanks to folks who had helped the community.
