At Traditions 18thC Furniture, I recreate Shaker and Colonial furniture strictly by hand. I also restore antiques, historic homes and custom cabinetry
I have been building Shaker and Colonial furniture in my one man shop for the past 20 years. My love of history is what introduced me to these styles. The clean, un-ornamented lines combined with simplistic functionality draws me to immerse myself in their rich culture. I strive to make every piece as historically accurate as possible. Every detail is carefully studied to ensure its authenticity and a blacksmith will hand forge any ironwork used on your heirloom.
In order to replicate their furniture, I must also replicate the way they worked. This means not only using the same locally grown lumber but also employing traditional hand tool and joinery methods. I can see why they enjoyed the use of these tools. Besides being peaceful, hand tools leave a glass-like surface texture in preparation for applying a finish and they are just plain fun to use. They also provide more of an intimate contact with the wood grain allowing you to feel the subtle changes in grain structure and direction.
