Steve Grasselli holding Shaker Boxes Quote by Steve Grasselli


"For more than a decade now, Steve has conducted Shaker oval box making workshops, provided training sessions for staff and volunteers, and presented hands-on demonstrations and oval box making historical interpretation for Hancock Shaker Village.

Whether instructing a class of eager students in basic to advanced box making, or training Village staff and volunteers on the history, importance, and techniques of the craft, or bringing the Shaker story to life interpreting box making for Village visitors in the historic Brethrenís Workshop, Steve is unfailingly enthusiastic, engaging, and educational."

You will find no better example of Shaker craftsmanship alive today than a handmade oval box by Steve Grasselli.  Each one is lovingly created from noble cherry, maple or pine woods.  Each possesses a distinctive beauty.  Each one attracts the eye and is smooth to the touch.  Turn the box upside down and the lid remains firmly in place, snugly fitted to the box.  I have ordered 40+ boxes from Steve over the last 10 years for weddings, births, as well as for my own children.  Each is a work of art to be treasured by the next generation.
