This is my first attempt at a shaker box. I resawed the material on my table saw, i used my surface sander to remove any remaining milling marks. I used my new Earlex steam generator to facilitate the bending. Copper tacks were used and clinched using a length of iron pipe. Pine top and bottom are held in place with brass escutcheon pins. My next attempt will use wooden pegs. I veneered the top with curly maple to hide a less than perfect fit. Rattle can lacquer for finish.

I am going to make some soon and was debating table saw or band saw to resaw the sides. I seem to have better thickness control with the table saw. I saw a demo by John Wilson in Charlotte couple years ago. Bought templates and tacks at that time. Did you use solid wood or ply for the bottom?
