Feather Box


Feather Box Measurements: (inside) 16 3/4"x3" (outside) 17 3/4"x4".

 Feather Boxes are handcrafted from aromatic cedar, your new box is made with top quality wood and hardware, with strong, glued joints. After being sanded, it is then coated with shellac or an oil & urethane finish for protecting the wood and to keep it looking nice for years to come. You may further add a light layer of paste wax for additional protection from dust and light scratches. 

The inside is unfinished in order to allow the wood to release that fine cedar aroma. However, it tends to make it mor susceptible to moisture, so it is recommend to store it away form high hummidity areas such as windows, kitchens, and bathrooms. Still, there should be no problem with taking your box to powwows or meeting and for long term storage of feathers. Be aware, however, that aromatic red cedar lumber contains knots and is unavoidably prone to checking and cracks. It "moves" more than other woods and may develop small cracks over time as it seasons and dries out. The best grade of kiln dried cedar available is used in the construction of your box. 

You should also be aware that cedar is an oily wood and sometimes this oil may leach out, and stain. It is recommeded that you line your box with cotton or wool in order to protect the contents. (DO NOT USE mothballs)
