right, more is better....... right? Sometimes less is best. Here is an essay about what we commonly refer to as SHAKER. Simplicity, elegance, straight ahead beautiful. Furniture that captures the essence of purpose and executes that idea. The Metropolitan Museum publishes this essay and pictures of elegant SHAKER pieces.

Gather ideas for your projects, and pay concentrated attention to the details in fabricating those projects. The results will be timeless pieces for your legacy, and heirlooms for your loved ones, probably outliving the memory of you. That’s one reason to sign your work adding maybe a brief note about the piece.
