Oval Box -Cherry- (size #6)

First introduced at Uguisu back in 2016, now they are back!

Wooden Oval Box by IFUJI - a wooden craft studio created by a craftsman Masashi Ifuji. IFUJI's boxes are hand crafted using the original templates and traditional techniques used by The Shakers from 19th-century colonial America.

IFUJI's boxes are all made by hand in the traditional way, by boiling the wood, shaping it, and allowing it to dry in a mold for two days, ensuring their unique characteristics.
Originally, The Shakers used oval boxes for holding sewing and quilting tools and for storing dry foods in the kitchen - today their uses are unlimited. 

Exteriors are finished with flaxseed oil based coating and bees wax, while insides are unfinished.
