Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
A good history of the Kentucky Shakers, with examples of buildings, shops and woodworking. Also, good measured drawings to build projects.

Kerry Pierce Shaker Furniture
This Book has outstanding color photographs, very good plans and supporting drawings. The Pleasant Hill pieces in this book are not as complex overall as the furniture that is found in books on the Hancock Village furniture, but there is something to challenge almost everyone except the most skilled woodworker. If there was one thing that I could wish for it would be a few more plans, there are 17 in the volume. The books pictures are worth the price alone, the photographer Al Parrish did an excellent job.
