Make three classic Shaker pieces in American red cherry. The Shaker basket with a hooped handle, a divided carrier and a candle sconce, each reflects the simplicity of Shaker design. Guided step-by-step through the process, you will use traditional woodworking techniques for bending wood and crafting the iconic Shaker swallow tail joint.
