Overview

Nothing could be lovier than a traditional Swedish table or a decoratively shaped mirror frame. Their balanced forms and simple finish have a timeless elegance that suits both modern and traditional homes.

The 35 woodworking proects in this book come directly from Sweden's past, and the original pieces can be seen in famous Swedish museums. Many of the pieces evoke familiar early American styles, but with a distinctive Swedish touch. The projects include small and easy-to-make things such as a plate rack, child's stool, tray, and simple cutting boards. Others are larger and more challenging, like the stepladder, the armchair with turned arms and legs, the shelf with built-in-drawers, and the sturdy country bed.

Each piece is photographed and every detail is accurately described. Step-by-step instructions and expertly drawn how-to diagrams are given for every project. They are also instructions for traditional Swedish finishing, painting and staining methods.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This adaptation of a Swedish title provides hobbyists and craftspersons with photos and measured drawings of over 35 small trays, stools, mirrors, large cabinets, chairs, and tables from various Swedish museums. A brief introduction covers wood, joints, hand tools, and finishes for the beginner. Although light on construction details, the book's plans and photos are adequate for experienced woodworkers. The design of the items is closer to early American than modern Scandinavian, and extensive collections of wood project books and woodworking magazines will not discover much new here. However, smaller collections building in this area may find the title useful.--Walter T. Johnston, formerly with Coastal Plain Regional Lib., Tifton, Ga.
