S.Timberlake Made to Order Shaker Furniture
Kitchen Counters & Islands can make life interesting once they're finally installed in your new home or remodel. You may discover the height has magically risen an inch above the designer's specs, the island could be Rhode Island, it's so unexpectedly large, and the colors of everything are just what you wanted, different...and then you start to wonder... where are you going to find stools that will fit and look like they belong there? Then once you think you have the "look" and size figured start to wonder some more...will those stools fit the people who will use them everyday? What about the back height? The seat depth? The height of the footrest? Will they be comfortable for all the activities that will happen there, besides just grabbing a quick lunch? You might also start to think it's just hopeless, you'll never find counter stools that will be just right for your kitchen and you'll have to settle for just anything. We're hoping you get to us before you get to that. We make Totally Custom Shaker counter stools. We have made hundreds of counter stools to fit and blend perfectly into kitchens of many different styles and designs. Perhaps what we do best is make stools that not only fit your home but your lifesyle as well. When you call us with your ideas or project, we will walk you through our checklist to design and make the Shaker stool of your dreams to fit the home of your dreams.

Shaker furniture has been built by hand in our Bethel,Maine workshops and shipped worldwide since 1974. Our customers have always selected the stain or paint colors for their furniture, as well as the Shaker tape colors for their chair seats, but as building and lifestyle trends have changed, we are offering our customers many more options when ordering furniture for their home. Our catalog of Shaker furniture describes our "most popular" pieces, prices, styles, and dimensions. These same pieces may be built larger or smaller, narrower or wider, and finished in most any color for the same price as our "standard" offerings, and on occasion, much less. Call us with your next project and discover how affordable "handmade to order" furniture can be.


Our Bethel,Maine Showroom and Store is a must see showcase of Shaker furniture, finely crafted accessories for the home and Timberlake's trademark woodenware. Our Shaker bedroom features our collection of original Mt. Lebanon Shaker Rocking Chairs dating to the 19th century.

Shaker Chairs  Ladderback Chairs

The Shakers didn't invent the ladderback chair, but they certainly approved upon the "slat back" chair designs that were made in England and America in the 17th century. The chairs made at various Shaker communities all show a common appearance; a simple, light-weight, "rung-constructed" chair adorned only by the finial atop the back legs, a common indicator as to the chair's origin. What is most unique, and often overlooked by the casual observer, is the backward tilt of the chairs which make them more comfortable than other early American designs.
