David Evans (a.k.a deShaker), of Canfield, OH makes Shaker boxes and finishes them with our Milk Paint.

“When I retired after 30 years of teaching I was looking for a hobby that could be of benefit to my community and country. I decided to try making Shaker boxes. I use Old Fashioned Milk Paint to finish the oval Shaker boxes that I make in my home shop. It is the perfect finish to achieve the primitive look that collectors of Shaker items love. I sell my boxes on Ebay in the category ‘antiques-primitive’ using my Ebay name of deshaker.”

“Last year we gave over $2000 to about a dozen different charities. This year we’ve sold and distributed about $700 from the proceeds of the sale of Shaker boxes, trays and carriers.”
