How to Build Shaker Furniture

The best gifts are used over and over again, and this updated and improved classic will certainly be a favorite that is referenced continually.

Interest in Shaker design is as strong today as it was when the first editon 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.

Thirty-five years ago Thomas Moser wrote what was one of the first books on building Shaker-style furniture, and in fact, one of the first books written for woodworkers that offered plans for building furniture. The simple, direct presentation sold continuously for years, inspiring and educating untold craftsmen.

Much has changed in those years in woodworking technology for both amateurs and professionals. In this Signature Edition, the section on tools is altogether new and reflects changes in technology. New color photography has replaced the original black and white photos.  Click here to order “How to Build Shaker Furniture.”
