Milk Painted Oval Shaker Boxes

Our Milk Painted Oval Shaker Boxes are handcrafted with quality cherry wood, utilizing traditional techniques formed by the Shaker community.

We hand select the rough cherry boards and then re-saw them into usable pieces that we are able to work with. The fingers on each box are hand carved, with precise care. Each piece is then soaked in a hot water bath for up to a half hour and then bent around a wooden form to shape.

We use a natural based milk paint to get the richest colors possible. Each piece has several coats of paint for the best quality.


Milk Painted Oval Boxes (assorted sizes) $40.00 - 102.00
