Some are still in the process of becoming. Dimensions, it seems, are always changing. We will build a chest with a 32”-height, thereby achieving the golden mean, Aristotles’ vision of perfection, only to discover that most people prefer a 34”-height because it makes carving a turkey more convenient. In building the first “two-stepper” we followed a Shaker prototype. It turned out to be far too unstable to use with confidence. If one were to build furniture today to exactly the scale used by a Shaker community of 1830, he would be building for prepubescent children, since today’s adults are fully four inches taller than Americans of 150 years ago.

The period between 1820 and 1850 was the Shakers’ golden age of design, a kind of Periclean age during which pure forms spilled forth. Forms light in expression, well balanced, not excessive in any regard, were produced for domestic use. This period is also noted for its exquisite workmanship. Joints were delicately made, and the handling of wood reached perfection. Understatement and effortlessness seem to permeate much of the period. Finishes were applied with care, and still perform even today the task of stabilizing and enriching the grain.

Imagination can be made real through the enhancement of natural materials and a commitment that beauty flows from aesthetic, indeed divine inspiration. Globalization has brought us a cornucopia of manufactured things made inexpensive through cheap labor and environmental indifference. Please understand, I am happy that for less then twenty dollars I bought a quartz watch with an expansion band from Walmart and it runs flawlessly. The downside, of course, is that not one of my countrymen had a hand in making it.
