I surfed the web

Kendub,
I surfed the web yesterday, alot, to try to find out what one of these churns looked like, i had no luck. I did find an amish butter churn made from wood and some that where made of glass. I guess my biggest problem is i do not know what the difference would be between an amish churn and a shaker churn. Could you maybe give some info on what a shaker churn would look like. If you want to you can check out this site--www.amishshop.com there are butter churns on that site you could copy.

I found these from various sites. I'm not sure what makes them a shaker style vs. traditional churn but I want to make a few of them. Let me know if anyone has one or knows where I could find a working a plan. I searched the net but I really can't find anything more than this. Thanks Ken

I think the only real difference is in the visual styles. you look at these dash style butter churns, the banding is made of iron. On the butter churns in the photo on your blog, the banding is in the style of the shaker oval boxes. I doubt there is much difference on the inside of the churns.

Shaker oval box - http://www.shakerworkshops.com/catal...al-Boxes/13F07

I could be way off the mark too.

Maybe this will help

Some are "coopered" others have tapered flat sides. Interesting project.
