New Lebanon Shaker Boxes

I made another set of Shaker boxes. The sides are made from maple. The tops and bottoms are pine. The swallowtails are fastened with copper tacks.

I painted these boxes in the red and black style I have seen referred to as New Lebanon style. I painted the boxes completely red and then painted the black parts. This way, if the black eventually starts to wear off, then the red will start to show. I didn’t try to prematurely distress these boxes, but if they become worn they will look awesome.
