Cherry Shaker Box #5

Jeffrey 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. Coper tacks in the fingers fix the oval shape. The top and bottom are secured with wooden pegs.

Jeffrey Neil

Jeff Neil is a woodworker specializing in fine wood boxes made in his Gray, TN workshop.


Shaker boxes have humble beginnings as utilitarian pantry boxes made primarily of hard maple with pine tops and bottoms.  Since the late 1800’s, craftsmen have built upon their classic design with a variety of styles and woods.  Jeff uses hard maple, cherry, walnut, curly maple, birds eye maple and sycamore for his boxes along with a number of woods and veneers for the tops and bottoms.
