Cherry Shaker Button Box


Shaker button box made of cherry with a contrasting wood lid.

  • Approximately 10″long x 7″wide x 2.5″high
  • Made in TN


At the request of a Shaker seamstress, a box was designed to be shorter in height to facilitate her sorting of buttons.  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.
