Bent-box Kits

Cedar bent-boxes, also known as bent-wood boxes, are beautiful and functional containers that are used to house articles of great importance or wealth. Once constructed, the bent-box can be decorated by painting designs that represent the clan history or a supernatural animal crest. Once the artist has completed embellishing the bent-box, a natural finish is applied to the box exterior to protect against oils and other contaminants. The interior of the bent-box is left natural so the aromatic scent of cedar can be enjoyed for years to come.

The Bentbox kit comes with pre-cut cedar; ready-to-trace designs; and detailed instructions on how to assemble, wet sand, trace, paint and wax the bentbox. Currently there are eight designs to choose from.
