Step-by-step projects for building beautiful Shaker furniture for every room of the house. About the Series: Discover the timeless projects in the Built to Last Series. These are the projects that stand the test of time in function and form, in the techniques they employ, and represent the pieces every woodworker should build in a lifetime. Woodworkers and furniture enthusiasts alike have long loved the practical, durable, and attractive style of Shaker furniture, and this collection of original projects are suitable to grace all home interiors-from traditional layouts to more contemporary arrangements. A step-by-step instruction aid, each project is accompanied by detailed shop drawings that break down component parts into a manageable assemblage. While avoiding Shaker cultural origins and history, this book emphasizes the simplicity of each project-with each component piece practically coming off the lathe with the look and feel of a master's touch. Projects include a rocking chair, a meeting house bench, a drop-leaf table, a wall clock, and boxes and stools, while a gallery of finished pieces will inspire crafters to address and tackle each delightful challenge.
