The untold story of the birth, death and resurrection of a Kentucky Shaker community is revealed by Kerry Pierce in his new book, “Pleasant Hill Shaker Furniture” (Popular Woodworking Books). This inspiration to woodworkers showcases seldom-seen furniture and details of period construction methods, and it’s a history aficionado’s study of how people lived during the 19th century.
