Paul,
 
Shakers built very simple designed almost austere furniture similar in vein to the Mission style with more freer round and oval shape. Think sans serif for Shaker and Mission. Amish is more traditional classic with ornamental embellishment. Think serif for Amish. They all are known for extraordinary quality.

    Thanks for the correction to my New Harmony post.  It is indeed an interesting place to visit.

      Thanks Davydd for the correction.  I just know what the Amish did with the wood was artist quality.

        I had to laugh at the "amish is more traditional classic with ornamental embellishment"

          I am not sure about the relationship of the  Shaker and the Amish but a friend of my in Springfield Ohio built a beautiful home on the highest point in Springfield.  He had the Amish folks custom build his furniture for his den and office.  It took them a year but it was beautiful and a absolute piece of art.  It cost him $100,000 but the appearance with the different colors of woods and striping was nothing like I had ever seen.  I wish I had taken a pic of it.  It was double rock solid.

          I have made numerous visits to Lancaster, PA and had a chance to observe the Amish in their environment.  I saw ten year old boys driving a four horse team in the field mowing hay.  They may be strange but they are extremely industrious people.

          While both sects, Shakers & Amish, live by similiar principles, they are not interconnected. The Amish have their origins in Switzerland and are more related to the Mennonites. The Shakers have their origins in England and are more related to the Quakers.

            I wonder when it finally dawned on the Shakers, that their's was a short term deal? LOL!

              Holmes County Ohio has more Amish than anywhere else in the country.  It's a beautiful area south of Canton.

                No spice?  Michael and I just got married.  To the best of my knowledge it's the first Roadfood Marriage.  That's pretty spicy!  And I seriously doubt that Roadfood 2012 will die out.  At least I hope not.

                 
                HUH? WHAT? Jeez, I live in a cave! Congratulations! You are each one of my favorite people on Roadfood! I wish you happiness!

                  Nope. The Amish will give you quality construction but they have no familiar design style like Shaker or Mission that you can definitively point to and say that is Amish. Some will build in that clean, simple design way but they will also build you a classical Colonial looking piece of furniture. They are less known for style than quality.
