Skinner Auctioneers, in Marlborough, Mass., has an astounding collection of Shaker pieces from the Andrews Shaker Collection up for sale in a June 15 auction.
Unfortunately, the pieces to which I am particularly drawn are estimated to go for far more than my car would be worth brand new – bells, whistles, undercoating and extended warranty included. So, I’m looking at the pieces in this auction as a source of inspiration, and encourage you to do the same. Click through the link above to take a look.
p.s. We recently collected 31 Shaker pieces from the magazine into one book: “Shaker Furniture Projects.” (Perhaps in a future edition you’ll see a piece or two inspired by the Andrews Collection…I quite like the “pan” cupboard, schoolhouse cupboard and loom bench.)
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
