When Christian Becksvoort discovered Shaker furniture in college, he immediately fell for its simplicity and plainness, for its form-follows-function approach. A few years later, he took a job reconstructing furniture for the Shakers. Today he makes much of his furniture in the Shaker style. In this richly illustrated article, he describes Shaker-style crown moldings, door frames and panels, drawers, knobs, tabletop edges, and legs and turnings.
