I started making Shaker Boxes around five years ago. Having been a nurseryman for many years I decided on a change of direction and to pursue one of my other passions, working with wood. I have appreciated the simplicity and beauty of Shaker designed furniture for many years and made a few pieces for our home. Some years ago I bought some Shaker boxes as a present. Why not make them myself!
So now I make boxes, baskets and trays for others. Enjoying the making process, working with wood and keeping the traditional skills alive. The essential designs and techniques remain as they were 200 years ago.
