Recently I have taken an interest in building Shaker furnishings, I have always loved it, but I am ready to build it.
This album will contain all the furniture I will build in the Shaker style.
Virtually any of the items I will be posting in this album are inspired from books written by Kerry Pierce. Mr. Pierce has created a variety of books on the shaker style, the history and culture of the Shaker community, and within the books there are detailed drawings for much of the work the Shakers produced.
Here is a link to Kerry's site at Kerry Pierce Furniture and here is a link to his books at Kerry Pierce Books in Amazon. I highly recommend the books by Mr. Pierce, they are well made, and well priced as well.
Just one of Kerry's books
Thanks for visiting this album, and thanks for looking!
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
