The Shaker furniture and accessories we make are scaled down from measured drawings of actual full scale pieces found in books and museums throughout the Northeast. For authenticity, and to keep the fine grain appearance, we use mostly American Cherry wood.

 

Purchasing full scale lumber and reducing it to scale in our shop ensures the quality of material that is needed in miniature work. Each piece is finished with professional water stains, sprayed with at least two coats of lacquer and hand rubbed to give an authentic fine furniture appearance.
