Bunker Hill Bookcase: Simple and Stylish
The Bunker Hill Bookcase blends a Shaker style with a modern twist. The Shaker style usually features black knob hardware and flared feet. Also, straight angles with a few curves are common Shaker accents. But the Bunker Hill Bookcase also boasts a modern twist. A crowned top and rope twist moulding add a unique style. For Weaver’s builders, putting a new twist on an old design is part of the job. This blend of old and new has led to the Bunker Hill style becoming a favorite design at Weaver Furniture Sales.
The Shaker style goes back to early American history. A Christian sect known as the Shakers built simple chairs for their church gatherings. Soon the “Shaker style” chairs became known around town. It wasn’t too long before neighbors and strangers came knocking at the Shaker’s doors asking to purchase a “Shaker style chair.” One could guess that the Shakers were taken aback by the strange request. But soon Shaker chairs were being sold and the small Christian sect could thank the Lord for this surprising source of income.
Today, Shaker style furniture is crafted for every room in the home. Here at Weaver’s, these pieces are still built the old way. First, our builders select good quality woods. Then, each piece is based on a classic design. Finally, the piece is stained or finished. From start to finish, the process takes weeks. But the building skills take a lifetime to acquire. Weaver’s Amish craftsmen have mostly grown up in woodworking and learn tricks of the trade from a young age.
