Jeffrey Neil

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

Description

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.
