Overview

The Shakers produced many incredible furniture objects that we continue to venerate today. For the woodworker the fascination is often rooted in the essential simplicity of the work. Interest in Shaker design is as strong today as it was when the first edition of this book was published in 1977, possibly stronger. This ongoing interest is the direct result of the inherent beauty of Shaker design—beauty that stems not only from form, but from superb workmanship, a commitment to utility and a total understanding of material.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shaker-style furniture is simple, elegant, and timeless. Moser here updates his 1977 title to encompass new materials and tools and add more projects, for a total of 45 designs, many more than found in similar publications. After introductions to style, materials, tools, and techniques, the project designs, which progress from simple to complex, are displayed in exploded views with detailed measurements and construction tips. No step-by-step instructions accompany the projects. Illustrations are clear and attractive. This beautiful book is essential for any woodworking collection and will well serve intermediate and advanced craftspeople. Highly recommended.
