“For another huge helping of inspiration, I totally enjoy perusing 500 Cabinets: A Showcase of Design & Craftsmanship. I remember spending hours looking through Fine Woodworking's design books when I was younger, and today we have the 500 Series of books – the series includes books on tables and chairs. While the pieces in this book are mainly contemporary, this is one of those books that I look to for ideas or simply to get my creative juices flowing.” – Glen D. Huey, senior editor, Popular Woodworking Magazine
"If you are looking for ideas for a project, an excellent source is Lark Books' 500 Series. While this series covers many craft media, woodworkers will find the most inspiration from 500 Cabinets, 500 Tables, 500 Chairs, 400 Wood Boxes, and 500 Wood Bowls. Even if you are not looking for ideas, there is much in these books to appreciate and enjoy. You will probably do lots of nodding, plenty of eye widening, some jaw dropping, and, naturally, some wincing. Each book delivers a huge quantity of outstanding work." – Rob Porcaro, Heartwood: Inside the Woodshop
500 Cabinets: A Showcase of Design and Craftsmanshipby Ray Hemachandra, John Grew Sheridan
From a closed hutch and bedside table to cupboards, curios, and a waterfall chest of drawers, these 500 outstanding contemporary cabinets showcase the art and craft of fine furniture making. These newly made works celebrate shape, joinery, detailing, color, or the subtle combination of all those qualities. Above all, each piece testifies to the design and technical skills of its creator, and has that most precious element of all: imagination.
