This book covers the design elements and construction of Shaker styled furniture. It also lightly covers the history.There are several plans, unfortunately not the one on the cover. But, it should not be too hard to take what's in the book and create a plan for it as sizes are given.Some more plans covering the gallery items, especially the cover item, would have been nice. But, overall it is a really good book.

The book is decent on it's selection of Shaker style furniture and steps on building them. The pictures are a bit thin and the steps themselves are sometimes cloudy and not very clear. Over all, it is a good book to have in your library to have as inspiration, but don't expect too much.
