MYERS: CONTINUING A SHAKER TRADITION

After the 2013 Shaker Woods, Al Myers purchased a broom company from a friend and named the business Black Dog Broom Company after his Labrador retriever.

The former owner taught Al how to make a basic broom. He learned how to make other brooms thanks to photos and Internet videos. Through trial and error, he now offers six to 10 types of functional brooms per show. They include kitchen, shop, cobweb and hearth brooms, as well as a witches broom for Halloween. Different sizes and colors are available.

He and his wife, Carla, currently make all the Shaker style brooms in their basement. But the Canfield residents have outgrown that space and are moving production into a separate shop.

Their adult children help staff booths at shows, but soon they’ll begin making brooms.

This is the second year Al and his family will be at Shaker Woods. They look forward to many more. Look for Al in booth 1.
