Cutting the fingers

To make a Shaker box from a commercial kit, first prepare the stock for the two bands—one for the box and one for the top. The bands are typically resawn from hardwood stock to a thickness of Kie inch. For best results, use straight-grained, quartersawn stock air-dried to a moisture content of 15 to 20 percent. Once the bands have been cut to size, use the proper-sized finger template to outline the fingers on the box band (above), then mark the tack holes with an awl and drill them with a Ke-inch bit.
