The late Ejner Handberg (1902-1985) was born in Denmark, emigrated to America, and became a gifted cabinetmaker working in Stockbridge, Massachusetts for a good many years where he is perhaps best known to the general public as the man who helped design and build Norman Rockwell's studio. Handberg was a master of the Shaker furniture and woodworking style. Now his three previously published volumes on the subject have been combined together into a single volume and published by The Countryman Press as "Shop Drawings Of Shaker Furniture & Woodenware" providing cabinetmakers and antiques collectors with an authoritative reference comprised of accurate scale drawings of Shaker items ranging from Beds, sewing tables, blanket chest, school desk, and candlestands, to oval boxes, trestle tables, wall cupboards, revolving stools, and so much more. "Shop Drawings Of Shaker Furniture & Woodenware" is an invaluable, detailed, comprehensive, and strongly recommended addition to personal and professional woodworker reference collections, as well as the Shaker Woodworking Studies reference collections of antique dealers, collectors, libraries, and museums.

A good collection of measured drawings of many Shaker items, some of which are not generally available in other reference books.

This is a bare bones manual with simple text and line drawings but limited construction detail. It's definitely worthwhile for bulders of shaker reproduction furniture, Good line drawings of authentic specimens are hard to find.

This is a nice book! But it should be noted that all it contains is hand drawings.

From plain to complex - furniture for all. Easy to read, lots of hints and detail drawings of joinery included. A brief note on species of woods used, Often includes finishes on the originals. Hardback binding, handy size, stiff binding precludes laying flat on the scanner for shop copies. Keep your protractor or bevel gauge handy for measuring angles on chairs and benches.

I am replacing my library of woodworking books that I gave away to my children and friends. As I near retirement I want to take up the production of Shaker furniture as my life's work. This book was helpful in the past and I know it will help me on my way to a new career of furniture building.

A very good collection of Shaker furniture drawings with enough information to build your own. This book actually combines books to give you a large reference. If you are interested in building furniture in the Shaker style, this book is a must.

I bought this book because of a recommendation from Roy Underhill (unfortunately from his show - not personally). I do plan to build some of the furniture shown in the book and the plans, dimensions, and descriptions will be very helpful.
