    Pleasant Hill Shaker Village

    On a recent trip to Pleasant Hill, I was very impressed with the quality and diversity of the woodworking there. The Shakers used wooden items in nearly every facet of their lives. I took a lot of pictures, and would like to share them here.

    Let's start with probably two of their most famous things - the spiral staircases, and the "U" shaped drawered attic cabinet:

    By now you're probably tired of seeing all these pictures, so this is the last batch.
