8" Vintage Slate Shaker Box by Lone Elm Lane
Please note: I have added $10 to the retail price of the box to help cover shipping, which in the US is a flat $3. These are heavy, and bulky, and will require a lot more postage than usual. I can ship these overseas, but you will have to contact me for an actual shipping price -- and I can send you an invoice through Paypal for the price of the box, plus actual shipping costs out of the US. If you put this item in your cart and buy it, and you live overseas, I will contact you regarding paying the extra shipping costs -- invoices for that will be sent through Paypal. Thanks!
These boxes are individually handcrafted and finished. Each box is made from hard woods, and every piece of wood has its own characteristics, and therefore each box is unique. Lone Elm starts with rough sawn lumber from the mill and through many steps they prepare the wood for the box bands, then use steam to soften the wood and form the round box.
The bands are individually beveled and copper tacks hold it all together, just like a hundred years ago. Their exclusive re-design of these boxes will frame cross stitch and other needle arts on the shallow top of the lid and then the lid can be flipped for increased depth to frame your hooked rug, a mounting ring is included with each box. Many existing patterns can be adapted or already will fit the round lid.
