It covers joinery relating to 18th-century furniture styles, as well as the demanding techniques required to complete ornate period pieces. Turning and carving, as well as building accurately, are all included in a highly visual format. Over 400 photos and drawings illustrate the methods -- from half-blind dovetails to gooseneck moldings. If you love period details and long to create them, you will want this book.

You'll learn about:
