Furniture Workshop: A Woodworker's Guide by Kevin Ley
From his popular articles in Furniture and Cabinetmaking and The Router magazines, Kevin Ley has compiled an essential reference with everything a furniture-maker needs to know. Filled with color photos, exploded diagrams, and cutaway drawings, as well as a down-to-earth technical advice section that covers setting up a workshop and choosing every type of tool, it offers an array of appealing home furniture projects. A beautiful oak corner cupboard features gracefully curved display shelves. The drop-front desk has plenty of drawers-and 12 secret compartments. Based on an original by William Morris, the Arts and Crafts chair is a true design classic. Every project is well-illustrated and beautifully explained.
