Carved Oak Boxes, with Peter Follansbee
Carved oak boxes, a standard item in 17th-century New England homes, fit well in modern ones too. This video covers the layout, carving and construction used in two versions: one box fastened with iron nails, the other with wooden pins and glue. One box features wooden hinges, the other, blacksmith-made iron hinges. The larger “desk” box is fitted with lidded tills inside, along with a gallery of drawers.
