Working with stone and wooden objects since the early 1990’s, I have always been intrigued with a stone’s shape, texture and color. Like wood, when stone is polished and oiled, the color pops into amazing hues.

When restoring Hancock Shaker Village’s stone fireplaces, and chimneys, I got interested and involved in Shaker architectural lines along with their cultural values. With the help of Ejner Handberg’s shop drawings and John Wilson’s guidance I was able to replicate the classic Shaker Oval Box. Materials include tacks from a late 1800’s machine, used by the Shakers along with wooden pegs with a classic oil/wax finish.
