Shaker chairs ranged in size from 0 to 7, so the No. 3 is at the small end of the scale. However, it makes for a fine dining chair, especially if the room and table are relatively small too. For...

I'd be embarrassed to tell you how little I charged for these. I figure they're pretty simple, so don't overdo it. However, because of the way I position holes for the rails and stretchers, the legs...

I make full-sized Shaker chairs. My wife collects miniature chairs. So for Christmas this year I figured a shrunken Shaker piece might do the trick. The result is an exact "half-size" version of the...

This is the last of my Shaker chair exploratory. But 12 chairs in, I learned enough from this one to think that the exploring isn't over. Except for the stretchers, this chair was made from a single...

My first big (non-children's) Shaker chair. These are a familiar sight, so they're easy to take for granted, but, trust me, there's serious geometry going on here. The back legs are bent in two...
