Overview

Well-known studio furniture makers contribute some of their most successful designs for this book about building tables. Aimed at serious hobbyists, Making Contemporary Wooden Tables guides the woodworker through projects that build skills and offer a range of innovative solutions for table design. A variety of technique sections inform readers about project planning, efficient tricks with stationery tools, biscuit joinery, and attaching table tops to legs. The 18 projects--in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary--include side tables, coffee tables, stacking tables, nesting tables, dining tables, outdoor tables, plant stands, and consoles. Clear, often witty instructions written by an experienced woodworker, designer, and teacher lead the reader through each project. Color photographs and working drawings show the way to professional-quality results. An imaginative gallery section inspires readers' creativity.
