If you’re interested in Shaker furniture - its social and historical context - or want to reproduce classic Shaker designs, this book is for you.

Making Shaker Furniture details the Shaker’s approach to life and the manifestation of this philosophy in the spare, elegant furniture design. Shaker furniture was made to be pleasing and useful. The furniture’s practicality and simplicity continue to be deeply appealing to contemporary sensibilities. This practical book includes substantial projects (tables, chairs, beds, settees), “smallcraft” such as a cutting board, towel rack and a sugar scoop, and “utility designs” such as butcher block and a cradle. The book also contains information about Shaker wood finishing techniques.

The measured drawings show more than enough detail to build each piece but there is no cut list. These are plans, not step by step project instructions. With over 250 photographs and measured drawings for over 80 classic pieces that can be built as is or as a springboard for your own adaptations.
