Steve Grasselli holding Shaker Boxes Quote by Steve Grasselli

I can teach you to make boxes.  Most of my classes take place at Hancock Shaker Village, Pittsfield Mass.  It is a good way for a beginner to start woodworking, and a great addition to an experienced persons skillset.

 Everyone makes a nest of four boxes to take home.  In the class we will learn about Shaker history, shop safety, wood cutting, boiling, bending and all the other steps in box making.  In addition we will have a chance to examine up close boxes from the museum collection.  Most reproduction classes do not get to see antique examples of the work.
