Shaker Dining Room Tray

5.00

This piece is 18 1/2" long by 7 1/2" wide, with two internal compartments separated by a divider with integrated handle. Originally it would have been used for carrying flatware and other small items around a Shaker community's dining room.

The design is derived from a piece illustrated in Ejner Handberg's Shop Drawings of Shaker Furniture and Woodenware, Vol. I (Berkshire Traveler Press, 1973). It has been slightly adapted to place the bottom boards in an internal groove, and box joints have been used at the corners rather than the original butt joints.
