Traditional Bent Box

You will learn: Bending of wooden parts by thinning and steaming bending edges Putting the box...
The Indian tribes on the north-western coast of Canada use this bending technique to produce different containers from crates to chests. The side panels are made from a single continuous piece of cedar wood. The boards are also smoothed and the bending edges thinned out, notched across with a traditional carving knife, steamed and bent to a 90° angle. Both ends of the side panels as well as the base are joined with hand-made wooden nails. The lid is fitted perfectly and made watertight if needed. The box is finally decorated with Tsimshian Indian motifs or neutral textures using carving techniques and painted. Various designs are available to choose from. A traditional carving knife is used. Dimensions of the box 200 x 150 x 200 mm.
You will learn:
  • Bending of wooden parts by thinning and steaming bending edges
  • Putting the box together and placing the base and lid
  • Producing and working with wooden nails
  • Engraving techniques with traditional engraving knife
