Detailed Description

Encyclopedia of Shaker Furniture. Authors, Timothy Rieman and Jean Burks

This ambitious work is from the perspective of museum curators and scholars of Shaker furniture. It is a treasure house of information on the cultural sources, techniques, materials and personalities that went into the making of the first uniquely American furniture style. After an introduction covering general history and techniques (including an eye-opening discussion of the Shaker use of stains), the Encyclopedia is arranged geographically by Shaker Bishopric. Furniture, built-ins, finish carpentry, and tools are illustrated in color, accompanied by overall dimensions, material used, and other available information. This will find an honored place in any woodworker's library. 576 pages. Hardcover.
